--A negro woman named Elzey, slave of P. M. Tabb, is under arrest on a charge of poisoning the family of R. M. Allen, by mixing a drug with coffee.
It appears that several members of the family, who drank the coffee, were made very sick, but all have recovered.
The matter will be investigated by the Mayor after a physician has analyzed the fluid, and submitted his opinion thereon.
