AN OYSTER DOG. There are dogs that catrh rabbits and other doga that tree aquirn-ls. to aay nothing of bird and other sorts of caninea. Mr. Wm. Fitzhugh. of Ur? banna, had. a dog on exhibition in Ir? vington last week that was an oyster dog, a regula'- diver and retriever. A little lame fellow, watchful and alert, when an oyster shell or stone is thrown into the water straightway he awims out to the point where the shell falls, up goea his tail and htnd legs, and in a minute he comes up struggling and triumphant with an oyater in hia jaws which he lays at the feet of his owner and is ambitioua to dive again. Mr. Fitzhugh says he will bring up oy8ters about as fast as the averaga man can open and eat them. Then there are fishing cats aa well as oyster doga. Dr. C. F. Newbill aaya that when he was over on Cobb'a Island he saw a cat take some scraps of fish, place them in the edge of the water and lay in wait for small live fiah that came to feed. Aa soon aa these were in reach of her clawa, pussy made a grab and in spite of the fact that she was throughly ducked brought out and ata the reluctant gudgeons. The fact that cats are excessively fond of fish and oysters is a myaterious one, aeeing that they are aeemingly natural land animals, but that they should venture into the water, when all past history of cats shows that they greatly dislike to get even their feet wet, is a remarkable fact. Ia it possible that the cat was originally an amphybioua animtl? Possi bly of the otter type and ao hasinherited a fishy taste? But this is no place for theorlainij. In keeping with the above, H. H. Woodford, of Alvord, N. Y., says: "Almost daily my cat visita a stream flowing through the farm, liea on the bank with one paw partly submerged in the water, and as the trout glidesby a quick stroke is made and the fish lands on the shore. Pussy carries them to the house and will leave the fish wriggling on the piazza or gravel walk. If she happens to have kittens she will occasionally give then one. By actual count last summer she brought 150 trout to the house. The cat has been known to catch eight in one day." NORTHUMBERLAND NOTES.
