CONDITION OF MRS. DAVIS AND MRS. GEN. JOHNSON. - We are greatly gratified in being able to state that the injuries sustained by Mrs. President Davis, from the accident on Thursday, were much less than at first feared. She has not been confined to her room, we learn, and all apprehensions for her safety have been dispelled. Mrs. General Johnson is also improving rapidly, her fractured wrist having been properly set. She suffers but little pain, and her many friends may promise themselves the gratification of soon beholding her among them in perfectly restored health.
