A compa ny of soldiers under Lieutenant McGon nigle, Fifteenth Infantry, encamped near here have started in pursuit of the Indians. One of the section gang had gone further down the track before the Indians were seen and it is not yet known whether he has escaped. On the night of the 8th a party of In dians ran off with eight head of horses from Lynch' s ranche, twelve miles from this place. Mr. Lynch, seven soldiers and ten Mexicans are still in pursuit.

The President is getting through the day in a very satis factory manner. He has asked tor and taken a small quantity of food in addi tion to the liquid nourishment allowed. At the morning dressing the discharge of pus through the new opening was more free than at any previous time. Its character was gool and the wound looks well. His temperature and res piration continue within normal range, though immediately after the operation it was still shown by frequency of the pulse. At present his pulse is 110, tem perature 1)8.6, respiration 19. Signed ; D. W. Bliss, J. K. Barnes, J. J. WOODWARD, ROBT. llEYBUKN, uu. bliss' REl'OUT. Executive Mansion,' 4:30 p. m. Dr. Bliss reports at 4:30 p. m. that notwith standing the high pulse shown by the noon bulletin the condition of the Pres ident has been very favorable to-ilay, ami the rapidity of pulse was the indi cation of weakness, resulting from the operation and from the diminished quantity of food given him Monday and yesterday, but this is conditional and will not, it is thought, last longer than to-morrow. Already his pulse lias fall en six beats since noon. His tempera ture is only a little above normal. The President has taken more nourishment to-day than at any time heretofore since Sunday, and his condition, as is the opinion of all the surgeons, is much better than 24 hours ago, and the Presi dent performed this afternoon his iirst official act since the second of July by the signing of a formal requisition for tho extradition of criminals who some time since took refuse in Canada and are now in the custody of Canadian au thorities pending action of this Govern ment. HE SIGNS A DOCUMENT. Washington, Aug. 10. Blaine dis patched to Lowell at 1 o'clock p. m. The President's condition has not es sentially changed, since the morning's report. At noon he signed an import ant public document, to which his sig nature was indispensable, with a firm, clear hand. Washington, 10 p. m. The surgeons say they think the President will pass a quiet night and show a greatly im proved condition to-morrow. Banquet at Chrywtal Palace. New York, Aug. 10. The Herald's London special says: The seventieth International Medical Congress closed to-day. The members dispersed after the banquet, held at Crystal Palace to night. Much disappointment was en tertained by members of the congress, expecially to American and Canadian delegates, who had been invited to at tend Baroness Burdett Coutt's garden party, at Holly Lodge, Highgate, one of the most beautiful residences on the Northern Heights, above London. In spite of the rain over one thousand del egates and their wives made their pil grimage. They were debarred bv the weather from enjoying the beautiful park, and were received by tho Baron--ss in one of the long conservatories. Her American husband paid special at tention to the delegates from the United States and Canada. Possibly some of those who enjoyed the Baroness' charm ing hospitality may have the pleasure of reciprocating when she and her hus band pay thfcir proposed visit to Amer ica. Extri loa of Ilartmaun. Washington, Aug. 10. Wehle, Hart mann's Attorney, New York, having written to Sec'y. Blaine and alluded to Mr. Hitt, both' about extraditing Hart mann to Russia, and having asked that Secretary Blaine secure to him the pro tection of the government. Blaine re plies that this unparrelled request is es pecially improper. He cannot, without full examination of the many bearings of the case, pass judgment; nor could he, as proposed, solicit or interrogate the Supreme Court, and he sees no rea son why Mr. Hartmann should be singl ed out from the half million who landed here this year, for the protection of the government. Mr. Hitt's views are those of a private individual, and do not figure in the case as an ofñcial dc cisión. Secretary Blaine lately had the ma larial fever and a tendancy to chills. He is advised to go to the sea shore, and may go to Fortress Monroe, he being in W ashington since November. SpaiiUli and Mexican TourlslN. Chicago, Aug. 10.

Nothing more to identify tho murderer' of young Lauderman last night has been devel oped this forenoon and the police are still as much in the dark about the mat ter as they were last night.

The Times says: The Connecticut Board of Agri- cnlturaf Commissioners, after exten sive investigations, as to the products of the State last year, report that the revelations of the census of 1880 are well calculated to darken the solicitude for the agricultural interests of Connee ticut.

Soon after his return to Japan Mrs. Knowlton visited that country, and returning about live years ago, brought with her the young person now in question, then seven years old, with authority from her father to act as her guardian and see that she received an education. It is alleged that Mrsi Knowlton diverted the money sent her to her own use, spending it in traveling and visiting watering places, and neglecting the child's education. Mrs. Knowlton, it is said, refused to surrender the girl until she received about $2,000. which she says she spent from her own means for the child's support and education in le fault of remittances from the father. Mint InveNtigation. San Francisco, Aug. 10. In the mint investigation to-day Director Burchafd was put on the stand. He had been generally satisfied with the manage ment of the San Francisco mint. A por tion of the large wastage of 187!) was due to the use of copper canisters in annealing instead ot open furnace, a practice which had been abandoned. A further loss was caused by the work ing of low grade bullion. Silver bullion with copper base has been received at all the United States branch. mints. A statement from the records of the mint showed that of condemed ingots for the fiscal year, 1871), and 1880, twenty-four per cent, were Northern . Belle bullion. The witnesses' instruct ions to the branch mints, were concurred in by Secretary Sherman, were that no changes be im posed on bullion that does not require refining, even when such bullion is be low standard. Charges should be im posed when metal contains other prop erties that would make it brittle. Exhibition of Agricultural and Min eral Product. New York, Aug. 10.
