His physical strength keeps up wonderfully, with his mind entirely clear and active, without showing any excitement. The physicians do not count him beyond danger, but general confidence in his recovery is strengthened every hour. (Signed) Blaine, Secretary. BULLETINS. Washington, July 1:2, Executive Mansion.

Woodward. Reybum. WHETHER REPORTS OF THE PliESl DENT'S CONDITION ARE COL ORED OU NOT. A gentleman from New York, who arrived in the city this morning, says there is an impression among persons of that city that the bulletins issued re garding the President's condition, are more or less colored for the purpose of allaying public apprehension. lie also says many persons incline to the opin ion that original telegrams sent from time to time to Drs. Agnew and Hamil ton, consulting physicians, regarding the President's condition, are not given out for publication, and that telegrams purporting to be copies of those sent the consulting physicians are prepared for the purpose ot preventing any un due excitement, and consequently do not give the condition of the President as it really appears. These theories, if they do exist, are entirely erroneous, inasmuch as the official bulletins issued are written by physicians in charge, and contain the President's true condi tion at the time of their issuance. The same plan is adopted with regard to in formation which is dispatched to con sulting physicians. In both instances the contents are invariably telegraphed to the press from the original copies. It is not the intention of the attending physicians to express any opinion in the bulletins issued, but merely to con vey to the public the patient's true con dition from time to time. UNOFFICIAL BULLETINS. Executive Mansion, Washington, 9 p. m. The President's temperature, which at the date of the lastoltieial bul letin was higher than at any time has since steadily fallen until now it stands at about last night's ligures. No espe cial importance is attached by the at tending physicians to these daily lluc tuations in temperature and pulse, as at this stage of-the President's case they are to be expected. The several condi tions of the patient at this hour are fa vorable and satisfactory. THE COOLING APPARATUS. The cooling apparatus is working perfectly. The temperatxre of the room was reduced to 54 degrees this morning and the President complained of feeling cold. The doctors do not look for any permanent improvement for several days. K Uiiltenu Talks Abont His Iastnrdly Ieed. Washington, July 11. Guiteau says the inspiration of assassination came to him after Conkling and Piatt resigned. That he once went to the White House to shoot the President but could not shoot without endangering others and i deferred it. Yesterday he referred to his visit to tin; White House when the President had him forcibly ejected but j was quick to deny that that had any-! thing to uo with the attemptea assassi nation. His statements, however, in regard to his ejection from the White House were somewhat conllieting, enough so to warrant the supposition that his murderous assault was more a matter of personal revenge for what he regarded as a great indignity, nothing else. Once he said he had a determi nation to kill the President formed long before, he was ejected. At another time he said that it was on Thursday prior to the resignation of Conkling and' Piatt that he was put out of the White House, but seeming to recall the fact that he had said he made up his mind to kill the President just after Conkling and Piatt resigned, he corrected him self and said that it was long after he had determined to kill the President that he was ejected. He was quick enough to see t hat it would not do to say the assassination plot was con ceived after he was kicked out of the White House. Guiteau said he was not certain whether it was the first or sec ond shot that hurt the President. It is not true that Guiteau is kept in entire, darkness as to the condition of the President. He learns from somebody how the President gets along. Few persons who get to see Guiteau let him know how the President gets along and Guiteau said yesterday that he felt re morse at causing the President so much pain and was sorry the shot had not been instantly fatal". He thought it was when the President fell. Guiteau de clares that neither Pearl or any other man had any idea of his purpose to shoot the President, Guiteau keeps in apparent good spirits but his eyes are bloodshot, showing that his cheerful ness is assumed, lie says he wants the star route investigation pushed. Num bers of letters and potsal cards, mostly abusive, come to the jail. TiinnktiglvinK Proposed. Denver, Col., July 11. The following dispatch was received to-day: Columbus, Ohio, July 10. To Gover nor Frederick W. Pitkin, Denver: Pres ent indications strongly encourage the hope that the President will recover irom the horrible attempt upon his lite. It must occur to all that it would be lit- ting for the Governors of the several States and Territories to issue a procla mation setting apart a day. to he gene rally agreed upon, for thanksgiving and' prayers to Almighty God for the blessed 'deliverance of our President, and for this great evidence of his good ness to the Nation. If the suggestion meets your approbation, permit me to name the Governors of New York, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Maryland anil Ohio as a committee to Jix upon the day to be so observed. Please reply. ("Signed) Charles Foster, ' Governor of Ohio. Governor Pitkin immediately for warded the following reply: Executive Department, Denver, July 11. To Governor ('liarles Foster, Col umbus, Ohio: Our people recognize the hand of providence in restoring our stricken President to the service of the Nation, whose hearts he has won. Dur ing the past week we have alternated between hope of a day of national thanksgiving, and the fear of a day of national mourning. Now that danger to the President and to the country seems to have missed, the entire people of Colorado will gratefully unite in the observance of a day of thanksgiving and praise that so great a calamity has been averted. 1 approve of your sug gestion in relation to the method of as certaining the day for general observ ance throughout the country. (Signed) Frederick V. Pitkin. (Uiiiten.ii tnce a Member oi' Plymouth Church. New York, July 11. Information was obtained yesterday showing that Charles J. Guiteau, the would-be assas sin of the President, was once a mem ber of Plymouth Church, and upon fur ther inquiry it was ascertained from a member of Rev. I. B. Holliday's family that he "also belonged to one of the Plymouth Bible classes, but his connec tion with the church ceased about twelve years ago and lasted about two years. Mr. Alvan Hill, who taught the class of which Guiteau was a member, when asked about it, said that he re membered the person well enough, hav ing had personal experience with him, which clearly indicated his paucity of character. This is explained by saying that the very lirst time, ho ever saw Guiteau the latter said he was out of employment and trying to iind something to do, and on tins strength of that plea borrowed seven dollars from him. After that, said Mr. Hill, I found that he was not looking for work, and so when he came to me again soon after ward and wanted to borrow money I llatlv refused to let him have any. That was a kind of eccentricity he displayed. The custom was for members of the class to hang their pho tographs on the wall, all in one frame, and there it remained until he com mitted the horrible assault on the Pres ident. When I heard that he was the person who did that I took his picture down at once. Piece or Petty Malice. Detroit, Mich., July 2. A few d:vys since J. H. Maynard, of San Francisco, visited his old home at Ann Arbor, t his State, and was almost immediately ar rested on a charge of obtaining money under false pretenses, growing out of some business complications connected with the estate of an uncle. The .arrest is claimed to have been a gratuitous piece of petty malice, as the complaint was withdrawn when the case came to hearing. Maynard to-day retained counsel and commenced suit in the United States Court of this city agninst the person who caused his arrest, and proposes to make it warm for the individual. A SQUAWS SCHEME. The Story or Mary Polsctt, a Hair breed, Who Married a Iloaton Jinn. Twenty-one years ago old John Poi sett, a sdre-eyed French ('anadian who li.iil Imnn fn llin frnnlipr nmnnrr tho Tn- dians for twenty years took up his. abode in Denver. His house was a te pee, made from the skins of animals tanned and then smoked. This he placed upon the bank of Cherry Creek hi I .seen Blake and Wazee streets, on ti.ii east side. .He haTl married an In dian squaw, who had borne him a daughter who hail then arrived at mar riageable age. She had refused to anlndian, so her father had entered' the white settlement to enable her to choose a nalcfacc mate. Now, in 18G0, whitpAvomen were very scarce in Den ver, and a squaw oft-times stood a very good show with the lower order of hu man bipeds. In course of, time a sliif t less, whisky-drinking fellow from Bos ton offered' his hand, and was accepted by this Pocahontas of the "West, Poisett's daughter. His mission being accomplished, Poi sett folded his tent and Arab-like si lently stole away. He returned to his own people, as he was wont to call the murderous vagabond Indians who roamed upon these plains. The gov ernment in its wisdom at some prior day had offered a bounty for the pro duction of half-breeds not to elevate mankind, but to degrade the redskins. This premium or award was to be six hundred and forty acres of the public lands to each and every mongrel In dian or squaw born in the country. Twenty years have now passed away since Mary Poisett stepped from her moccasins shook her Indian blanket and passed into a higher civilization. Right well has she employed her lime, too, for to-day she and her progeny in herit and have had set aside to them by the government sixty-four hundred acres of the public domain, which for ever shall be exempt from taxation. Denver Tribune. 4!arliicld on the Murder of Lincoln. The. official report in the Congres sional Record of Saturday, April 14, 18(50, recites that Mr. -Garfield, in the House ot representatives, alter prayer by Chaplain Boynton, moved to dis pense with the reading of the Journal and said: "Mr. Speaker, 1 desire to move that this House do now adiourn. And before the vote upon that motion is taken 1 desire to say a tew words. This ilav. Mr. Sneaker, will be sadlv memorable so long as this Nation shall endure, which God grant may be 'till the last syllable of recorded time,' when the volume of human history shall be sealed up and delivered to the omnipo tent Jude. In all future time, on the recurrence of this day, I doubt not that the citizens oí 1his republic will meet in solemn assembly to reflect on the life and character ot Abraham Lincoln and the awful tragic event of April 14, lblio an event unparalleled in the history of nations, certainly unparalleled in our own. It is eminently proper that this House should this day place upon its records a memorial ot that event. At ter a brief eulogy upon the late Presi dent, and a pathetic allusion to the cir cumstances ot Ins death, Mr. darheld concluded: "It was no one man who killed Abraham Lincoln; it was the em bodied spirit of treason and slavery, in spired with fearful and despairing hate. that struck him down in the moment of the Nation's supremest joy. Ah, sir, there are times in the history of men and nations where they stand so near the veil that separates mortals from the immortals, time from eternity and men from their God, that they can almost hear the beatings and teel the pulsa tions of the heart of the Infinite Through such a lime has this Nation passed. When 2o0,000 brave spirits passed from the field of honor through that thin veil to the presence of God, and when at last its parting folds ad mitted the martyr President to the com pany of the dead heroes of the Repub lic, the Nation stood so near the vei that the whispers of God were heard by the children of men, Awe-stricken by His voice, the American people knelt in teartul reverence and made a solemn covenant with Him and with each other that this Nation should be saved from its enemies, that all its glories should be restored, and on the ruins ot slavery and treason the temples of freedom and justice should he built and should sur vive forever. It remains for us, conse crated by that great event, and under a covenant with God to keep that faith, to go forward in the great work until it shall be completed, following the lea of that great man and obeying the high behests ot God, let us remember that 'He has sounded forth a trumpet that shall never call retreat; He is Kiftinir out the hearts of men before His judgment seat, lie swift, my soul, to answer Him; be jubilant my leer, For (od is marching on.' " At the conclusion of this peroration the House silently adjourned. Luck in a Horse dhoe. En route to the executive mansion the horse attached to the Postmaster Gen eral's carriage cast a shoe. Mrs. James had the team stop and she irot out. picked up the horseshoe and carried it into the President's house, saying she hoped it would prove faithful to its general signihcance in this instance and bring good luck to the distressed home ot the President. The Philadelphia Press says: "The man who can face death as Mr. Garfield did when he cheerfully told Dr. Bliss he would take the chance, small as it was, of recovery that was held out to him, displayed a greater courage than he did when he rode across the field Chicamauga to Thomas." it A troupe of wandering musicians in Paris sends a collector among the lis teners, and while he carries a plate for the money in one hand he has his left hand closed over five tiles, which are counted when the receipts are turned over. If one is gone he is suspected of having stolen some of the money. Illiiiiiinntioii Celebration. Laht night being the lirst of illumina tion by gas in Las Vegas, Messrs. I). H. Irland, O. L. Houghton and others ar ranged for an entertainment at the house of Mr. Houghton for its celebra tion. All the necessaries for the proper enjoyment of the event were provided and those who were participants did ample justice to the occasion. There were speeches, toasts, etc., in fact ev erything to make up an evening of heart' enjoyment. The following gentlemen participated in the festivities: Dr. E. H. Skipwith, A. II. Lallue, John Dold, M. A. Otero Jr., J. Eugene Reilly, ('has. ('. Torry, John B. Wootten, James Hayward, J. II. Koogler, I). 11. Irland, H. Thomas, Lute Wilcox, It. A. Kistler, R. Oaldy, H. E. Hood. J. C. Blake. Theo. Ruten beck, I). T. lloskins, Y. D. Loke, Harry Kelly, W. C. Arnold, Geo. F. Canis. A. T. A- H. F. nud Southern Pacific It. It.-s Miibe I p. The agreement between the Atchison, Topeka & Lanta Fe and the Southern Pacific regarding through freight traffic oyer the Southern route to the Pacific Coast provides that the Union Pacific' shall not compete for business to New Mexico and Arizona points, while the Atchison, topeka iv Santa re agrees not to take any business to Utah and Nevada points. For California and racihc Coast business the Union l acihc uid Southern routes can compete, but the rates by both lines will be the same. 1 he new agreement, therefore, will be of little benefit to anybody, and will not change the course of the Pacific busi ness materially. The new route is the natural and direct route for Arizona and New Mexico, and the business for points in those Territories naturally belongs to it just as the Nevada traffic naturally inheres to the Union Pacific. As far as the Pacific Coast trade is con cerned, the Union Pacific will suffer but little from-the new competition, as, wit!i equal rates it will get most ot the business, except that for Southern Cal ifornia points. At equal rates shippers to California will prefer the Union Pa cific, as it takes two to three days less time to ship freight over the Union Pa cific than over the Southern route. In spite of the new agreement be tween the Southern Pacific and the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroads the Union Pacilie will continue to have a monopoly on the Pacific business for about two years longer, for as long as tiie Atchison, 'fopeka & Santa le is compelled to charge the same rate as the Union Pacific to Pacific coast points there can not be said to be any compe tition. In less t han two years the Atch ison, Topeka fc Saeta Fe will have a direct route to San Francisco via the Atlantic it Pacific Railway, which is now in 1 he course of construction, and is already completed and in running order from Albuquerque to the Utah line. This route when completed will be able to fully compete with the Union Pacific for Pacific coast business, being as available a route and nearly as short. As this entire line is controlled by the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe, it will be able to make any rates it chooses with out interference' or dictation from other parties. ' Darkles mid the End or the World. Atlanta, (a., July 4. Fully ten thou sand colored people were in the city to day. The railroad companies not be ing able lo accommodate the excursion ists with passenger coaches, long trains of cattle cars were used, and many of these came in from various directions, filled with tiie rural colored population. The simple-minded people are horror stricken, lirst over Mother Shipton's prophecy, then the appearance of the comet, and then the attempted assassi nation of President Garfield. Their su perstition is that the. fates are angry over the late defeat of General Grant for a third term, and for the ingratitude of many of their race deserting his cause, their freedom is about to be men aced. This fear, and an additional one of a speedy ending of the world, brought an unusual number to the city with a view of ascertaining' the best method of meeting the supposed pending disaster. There is a great religious fervor among them in the country, and revivals are many. Texas Si Clings. Austin, Texas. July It. The Adjutant-General's office is in receipt of in formation from ('apt. Caldwell, at Blanco Canyon, that a band of horse thieves from the Indian Territory are crossing the bed of the river and depre dating on the Texas plain, ('apt. Ar lington's company ot rang"rs will in deavor to capture them. Above Blanco Canyon on the plains cattle are dying by the hundreds from the effect of alkali'water, all fresh water having disappeared owing to drought. There are great fears that fires, proba bly startedby Indians, have, raged over the Panhandle regions, doing great damage. Range and stockmen have suffered great loss. Wells, Fnrgo A-t'o's Express.
