An I Inreasonakle Sheriff.— Some years ' ago a sheriff in the northern part of Vermont held a writ of execution against one of his neighbors, which, as usual in cases of this sort with the debtor in question, he bad a great deal of difficulty in collecting, and indeed, was compelled at last to resort to the more stringent provisions of thc law. Tho debtor though a man of limited means was a person of unlimited hopes and expectations, and gave his parole of honor to the officer that he would certainly pay the debt by a certain day. The day came, and so did thc sheriff, but no money, Again and again a day was fixed for payment of the execution, hut no advance was made towards "liquidation." At last, as the cxc cution had well nigh " run out," the sheriff told tbo debtor that thc debt must bo paid at once, or be should proceed immediately to ad vertise his personal chattels. Tho debt was not large, hut the sum was not an easy one to raise ou the spot, and the debtor begged for a delay of one day more. The sheriff' was in I givo you my word of honor," It wou't do " said the slier I'll pledge you this Bible," said the debtor, offering a largo family Bible, worth about the amount of the execution. " I don't want it," said the officer.

That functionary, who had until now stood in a corner, leaning upon his rifle, stepped up, and politely knocked off the offender's hat with that murderous instrument, where upou Mr. Badger (Badger was tho offender's name,) soized thc hat, and clapped it upon upon his head, loudly exclaiming— " Judge, I'm bald !" " Mr. Sheriff," said tho indignant court, " we instruct you again to remove that hat !" The order was instantly executed, aud no sooner done, than Mr. Badger replaced tho hat on his head a second time, again insisting that he was bald.
