Condition of the Sick.
Miss Elizabeth L. Van Lew began to sink early yesterday morning, and there is little hope of her recovery. She was, however, resting quietly at an early hour this morning.
The condition of Dr. Hunter McGuire was not so encouraging yesterday. He did not spend a comfortable day, but he is in no immediate danger.
