Denver, Col, June 2d - The Tribune's Santa Fe special says: A special from Las Vegas says that M.A. Otero, President of the New Mexico and Southern Railroad, has received what is considered reliable information that the Navajoes and Utes had a grand pow-wow near Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico, and it is understood the result of the Council was to make common war against the whites. If true, this is very important information, and troops should be sent at once to near the Navajo reservation and the Ute country. Although Colonel Buell with four companies of the Fifteenth Cavalry and some other troops are now marching to Fort Wingate, which is almost in the center of the Navajo reservation, still this force is entirely too small to prevent an outbreak. The Navojoes are rich in horses, cattle and sheep, and could place at least 600 men in the field.

The delegates to the Democratic State Convention are nearly all here. The sentiment is strongly in favor of Field.
