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.
