From New Mexico. Independence, Jan. 22. --The New Mexico mail, with dates to the 31st of December, arrived here this evening. About eighteen days ago Major Crittenden, with his command from Fort Union, came across a large band of Kiowa Indians, near the Cunerone Springs, and a battle ensued, during which fifty Indians were killed, and among them their notorious chief, Santunk. They burnt up one hundred of their lodges, and took all their ponies and provisions, &c. None of Major Crittenden's command were even wounded.
