patches An officer wbo'canie' up from
City Pduit to-day had wltn bim an ugly
looking . specimen of ,tbo : geoius canine,
which he guarded very carefully. The dog,
it appears, was a great pet with both our
' own aud the -rebel picket in front' 6 f Han
cock's corps. Thadbg had been trained to
carry .messages between: the. pickets. A
rebel paper would be placed, in his, mouth
and he would scamper off to the , Union
lines deliver up" the paper, and return with
a Northern paper. He has been intrusted
with packages) of poffea and . tobacco, -and
Aohvnrpi them orornDtlv and safely.
Therebs. however, tried to make use of
him for transmitting information from orie
nf tVioir lines to another, and' the
