(Mr. Conger reports that since his last dispatch there have been no important movements. The military is endeavoring to restore order. No representative of the Chinese Government encountered yet. Several ministers of the Tsungli Yamen reported to be in the city, and are expected to appear soon. Two thousand Germans arrived to-day. Generals believe Imperial palace practically vacant, and decide not to enter it.)
