Message from H. C. to remind the Lords of the Justices of Peace, Bill.
A Message was brought from the House of Commons, by Mr. Cholmondeley and others:
To put this House in Mind of the Bill, intituled,
An Act for the better qualifying Justices of Peace, in
that Part of Great Britain called England, and the
Principality of Wales."
Delsey versus Sedgwick, in Error:
Upon reading the Petition of Adam Delsey, Defendant
in a Writ of Error brought into this House from Her
Majesty's Court of Queen's Bench, the Second Day of
this Instant June, wherein James Sedgwick is Plaintiff;
shewing, "That the Plaintiff being indebted to the Petitioner in the Sum of One Hundred Forty-eight
Pounds, Twelve Shillings, and Nine Pence, for
Goods sold and delivered; the Petitioner, for Recovery thereof, brought an Action against the Plaintiff,
in Error, in Her Majesty's Court of Common Pleas,
in or about Michaelmas Term One Thousand Seven
Hundred and Nine, upon which he declared; and
though the Plaintiff in Error trades, and deals as a
Merchant, yet he pleaded to the Action, "That he
was a Cursitor in Her Majesty's Court of Chancery;"
which Plea was set down and argued; and, being
over-ruled, the Petitioner recovered Judgement for
his Debt, and Thirteen Pounds, Seven Shillings, and
Three Pence Costs, as of Trinity Term One Thousand
Seven Hundred and Ten; upon which the Plaintiff
brought a Writ of Error in the Court of Queen's
Bench, where he assigned the General Errors, and
the Want of an Original, by which the Petitioner
was delayed until the End of last Term, when the
Petitioner's Proceedings were all found regular, and
according to Law; and Judgement was affirmed, and
Twenty-eight Pounds given for Costs upon the Affirmance: But, the Session of Parliament being near
an End, the Plaintiff in Error has brought another
Writ of Error, returnable in Parliament, on Purpose for Delay; so that the said Cause cannot come
on this Session; and the Petitioner, having no Bail
on the said Writ of Error, is in Danger of losing
his Debt; and praying, "That no Proceedings may
be stayed by the said Writ of Error being brought
into this House, or the Petitioner otherwise relieved:"
Writ of Error not to stop Execution.
It is Ordered, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the bringing the said
Writ of Error into this House shall not stay Execution
on the said Judgement in the Court below.
Trade to America, Bill:
vice lecta est Billa, intituled, "An Act for
the Encouragement of the Trade to America."
Ordered, That the said Bill be committed to a
Committee of the whole House, on Tuesday next, at
Eleven a Clock.
Commissioners of Customs to give their Opinion thereupon.
Ordered, That the Commissioners of the Customs
shall have a Copy of the said Bill; and do lay their
Opinion thereupon, in Writing, before this House, on
Tuesday next, at Eleven a Clock.
