' nxs irooc Ancient Origin of the Spanish Merino fiheep, v The Invaluable race of the Spanish merino aheep is probably an Inheritance of Roman civili sation. The race moat prised by the Romans was ealled the Tarrenllne, from Tarrentlne, a town set tled by a Greek colony. They were called also Greek sheep. Their wool was ofexceedlng fineness, and they were protected by coverings of skins, and were also carefully housed and often combad'and bathed with oil and wlno. Hence, they were very delicate. Columella, the eminent agricultural writer of the ttoinans, who lived In the country be fore the Christian era, relatea (DoKe Iluetfca, Lib. VII. chap. 2) that his paternal uncle, M. Colu- Kelu, a man transported from Cadis to his farm ods which wera In Itoctlca, comprehending a part of the present province of Ertramadura, some wild rams of admirable whiteuesa brought from Africa, aniTcrossed them with the covered or Tar renilueewes. Their offrpring, which had the pa ternal whiteness, being put to paternal ewes pro duced rams with a flue fleece. Ihe progeny of S ess again retained tho softness of tho dam and a whiteness of the sire and grandslre. Othtr agriculturalists undoubtedly Imitated Columella, and a stronger constitution was thus Imparted to the flno fleeced but delicate sheep of ancient Italy. That this Improvement commenced In ancient tpatn la further established by tha testimony of tarbo, who snrs liihisaccountoftbeffcoaraphyof jaloountry(Ub lll,chap.2)thatlu his time, that or the Emperor Tiberius, wool or great fineness and beauty waa exported from Iludfianla, a part of UVUW.
