Condition of the Sick.
Dr. Hunter McGuire’s condition was somewhat improved yesterday. He spent a good day and rested well.
The condition of Miss Elizabeth L. Van Lew, who is ill of dropsy, was regarded as better yesterday, though the end may come at any time. She was brighter yesterday than for several days, and went to sleep early last night.
