PHILADELPHIA, July 6. The President's condition shows a steady improvement. At nine o'clock on Tuesday night his pulse was 106, his tem- perature 101, and his respiration 24. He took 18 ounces of chicken broth yesterday. He seemed to be hungry, and twice asked for food. He complained that the broth was not strong enough. He was afterwards given bouillon. The nourishment assimilated perfectly notice- ably increasing his strength. Limited inflammation has been developed in the bullet's track, but this is regarded as a healthy evidence of healing. No tympanitis has developed. The pulse increased during the night, relieving apprehension of any serious inflammation. No reaction occurred during the night. The President said that he felt considerably refreshed with his night's rest. His pulse at six o'clock this morning was 100. 6 p.m. This afternoon General Garfield asked to be allowed to eat a beefsteak, but as it was not thought prudent that he should partake of such solid food, he after some objection, consented to take an egg instead. This was given to him. He also wished to know whether he could not be permitted to hold a Cabinet. meeting, and evinced generally a disposition to enter into conversation, which the physicians were obliged to discourage and restrain. The symptoms now continue favourable.
