Third Battery of Maryland Artillery.
Sketch of the Third Battery of Maryland Artillery. By Captain W. L. Ritter. It was the fortune of the Third Maryland Artillery to serve in a field widely separated from that on which other Maryland commands won their laurels. With the exception of a small body which was for a short time at Charleston, South Carolina, during the summer of 1862, and of Colonel J. Lyle Clark's battalion, which served for a while in Tennessee, the military life of all other Maryland organizations was spent east of the Alleghany mountains, and none saw service beyond the limits of Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maryland. The Third Maryland Artillery, however, played its part in a wider theatre, and had a more varied experience. Its history has much in it that is novel. Combats with gunboats on the Mississippi, captures of transports, victories over iron-clads, and participation in the operations at Vicksburg, &c., follow upon and relieve the recital of its adventures among the mountains of East Tennes

Attempted Poisoning. --On Wednesday some person sent a bottle of whiskey into the quarters of Captain Porter D. Tripp's company of volunteers, and all the men that drank thereof, thirteen in number, were made quite sick, so that the services of a physician were required. The companies under the command of Capts. Allen and Gordon, of the same regiment, (Clark's,) also received a bottle of liquor, and those who drank from it were made very sick. Surgeon Kennedy was called in and prescribed for the soldiers, purging them freely, and he thought that they would soon recover from its effects. It is not known from whom the liquor came.--Boston Traveler.
