LOCAL AND COUNTY INSTITUTIONS, &c.
If decree be given against the defender in his ab-
sence, poinding and sale, or imprisonment, as above,
can only follow after a charge of ten days.
The defender, on showing cause, may be allowed
to pay the sums decerned for by instalments.
The decrees of the Sheriff and of the Justices may
be executed in any county, on the same being en-
dorsed by the clerk of such county.
Any arrestment used in cases before the Sheriff
must be used within sixty days after the warrant is
obtained, and renewed every three months ; and such
arrestments may be loosed, on offering sufficient
caution, or on showing evidence of absolvitor or pay-
ment, or on consigning the sums demanded, if be-
fore decree.
The above forms will apply to any action of forth-
coming whatever, before the Sheriff, for making
effectual arrestments ; but in such cases both the
defender and arrestee must be cited to appear in court
on the same day.
Decrees, pronounced in this summary form by the
Sheriff, will only be reviewable by the next Circuit
Court of Justiciary ; or if there be no Circuit Court,
by the High Court of Justiciary at Edinburgh, on
the ground of corruption, or malice, or oppression,
on the part of the judge.
Such decrees, when pronounced by the justices,
will only be reviewable by a reduction before the
Court of Session, on the ground of malice and oppres-
sion on the part of the justices, and such reduction
will only be competent for one year, and finding
caution for costs.
No person is exempt from the jurisdiction of jus-
tices or sheriffs in such cases, by reason of privilege
as a member of the College of Justice.
