Mr. Rhodes was the High Sheriff' of
county, Massacliusetts; and his good
name, inherited from the father, and cher
ished by the son, made him not only pop
ular as an officer, but,Tather IveUlthy, as a
man. Why Mr, Rhodes had never 'got
married, the ladies could not 'ascertain,
though they• talked the irtatfer, over . and
over very often; but almost All said - there
must have been some cause in his youth,
(Mr, Rhodes was • thirty-five, at least,)
which was• known only to himself, and
perhaps one other.
. 'Some disappointment,' said Miss Anna,
a young lady who thought it wrong that
gentlemen should be disappointed; 'some
fatal disappointment.'
'Not at all,' said her maiden aunt; •not
al, ails nobody ever thought that Mr. R. had
courage enough to offer himself. to a lady.
fle is so modest that I should like to see

'No doubt of it, aunt, n'O doubt Of itj and

said aunt Arabella.
'Perhaps not,' said Mr 4. Wilton, 'but
she certainly deserved one from
Rhodes; and I have frequently‘thought that ,
during service in church, he was .about to
make proposals before all the Congregation,

w'tten 4he had joktui.;lliis • Morgatt . hpo,n
her conquest, she rather pettiehly
'that ske' may, have subdued high but he
never acknowledged het. power.'
'Conquest and possession did not go to
gether, then,' said Anna.
• . „
•Well, is this attachment the cause of
AN Rhodes's single condition t Was
there no cute else it whom he could look
in church, who would be likely, to loek, at

'No . ,' said aunt A. with a hearty smile,
'none in the peisr to which you allude. I
at leak was too strongly impressed with
the force of the tenth commandment, , 'thou
shalt not covet thy neighbor's or nor his
ass,' ever to be looking over Miss Morgan
at Mr. Ithodei.'
One g,
, morning Mr..,Rhodes was 'sittin
in his office, when one of the deputies read
off a list of executions and attachments,
7hich,he had in hand to serve, and among
them was one against a lady at a . bliort dis
tance. The amount--was not kreat, btit
enough to firing distress upon a family
'Let me take that,' said the Sheriff', with
some feeling; it is out of your walk, and I
-will- drive-to-the-residence-of,the -person-to ,
• .1
morrow morning.'
The. modest vehicle-of the officer stop

- a-retired-and..delightfui:Sitp 4 ation, Where all
things told of taste' , and economY—The
a the house, and asked if Miss Morgan
was at home.-'
The servant Answered in the affirmative
As Mr. 'Rhodes passed along :the hall,
he thought over the 'part he had to perform
—how he should introduce
„the subject—
how,. if the' debt • should prove to be • otter
ous,lbe.should contrive to lighten the bur;
then by, his own • abilities; and when - he
reached the door, he 'had conned hOalitta
tint to the lady, and his oPening'ePeech
on the subject of his official call.
The servant opened the iicor,---Mr:
Rhodes entered with a bow. He bloshod,
hesitated and at length took a seat, to ivhich
Miss Morgan ,directed lam by a graceful
turn of her hand.
After a few moments' Iles;.:;:cy, Mr
Rhodes felt that it was his business
a conversation, that would explain the ob
ject of his visit; so he offered, by way of
preface, a few remarks upon the coldness
of the spring.
`Yes,' said Miss Morgan; but yet cold
as the weather has been, and even not
withstanding a few frosts, yon see the trees
haye their richest foliage,.and the flowers
are luxuriant.'
'True,' said Mr. Rhodes; 'it seems that
though there may be a great deal of cold
ness, that nature will have her own way,
and in time, will assert her prerogative;
late, perhaps, niss Morgan, but still the
Mr. Rhodes felt
.rather startled at his
own speech, and looking up, waS infinite
ly astonished to see that. Mis s. Morgan was
blushing like one of the roses that was
hanging against the window.
'W,e are pleased,' said Miss M., 'to see
what we admire breaking through the chill
ing influences by. which they have been
restrained, and satisfying our hopes of their
ultimate .discloSure.'
Miss Morgan was ,looking directly to
wards the bush on which three roses were

'The attachment, Miss Morgan, is of e
distant date, and I felt that too much time
had already elapsed; that, indeed, instead
of entrusting it, as I might have done, to
