TO THE EDITOR.

Sir,

The introduction and rapid extension of merino sheep, in this country, forms one of the most important features of our rural economy. I have heard the numbers of full-bred and half-bred now in the United States, very differently estimated. A correct idea of the actual number might be useful in many respects. I should be much obliged to any person, who would give to the publick through your journal, a calculation of the present numbers of these, and if he has the necessary data, of other kinds of sheep now in the country.
