(Commence as in the form, ante, 43, No. 1, and after the entry of all the pleadings, including the demurrer and joinder in demurrer, enter the following curia advisari vult, and then the award of yenire, &c. thus :) But because the court here are not yet advised what judgment to give in the premises whereof the said parties have put themselves upon the judgment of the court, a day is given to the said parties here until (day of judgment on demurrer) to hear the judgment of the said court thereupon, for that the said court are not yet advised thereof &c.

And for a breach of the said condition of the said writing obligatory, the plaintiff, according to the form of the statute in such case made and provided, sug. gests and gives the court here to understand and be informed, that [&c. here assign the breach, and conclude as follows :) Therefore to try the said issue above joined between the parties, and in case the said issue shall be found for the plaintiff, to inquire of the truth of the said breach in form aforesaid above assigned, and to assess the damages sustained thereby, the sheriff is commanded (&c. conclude as ante, 44, No. 1.]

12. The like, where the Condition of the Bond has been set forth (a).

[Commence as in other cases, as in the form, unte, 43, No. 1, and after copying the declaration, plea, und similiter, proceed thus :) And hereupon the plaintiff, for assigning a breach of the condition of the said writing obligatory, and to recover his damages by him sustained upon occasion thereof, according to the form of the statute in such case made and provided, suggests and gives the court here to understand and be informed, that [&c. here assign the breach, and conclude as directed in the preceding form.]

13. The like, where the Breaches ure assigned in the Pleadings. [In this case the common award of venire (ante, 43, No. 1) is sufficient; Quin v. King, 1 M. & W. 42; Scott v. Staley, 4 Bing. N. C. 724.]

14. Award of Venire, when the Venue is laid in Berwick-upon-Tweed. And because the borough of Berwick is a place where the queen's writ of venire facias to summon a jury to try the said issue does not run ; and because the burgesses of the said borough, by reason of their privileges, ought not to be put upon any jury to try the said issue out of the said borough, but the said issue ought to be tried by a jury of the county of Northumberland, which is the next adjacent county to the said borough of Berwick; which allegations of the said are not denied by the said ; thereupon the sheriff is commanded (&c. conclude as ante, 44, No. 1.

[See 1 Chit. Ar. Pr. 201.]

15. Award of Mittimus to a County Palatine (b). Therefore let a jury be made thereof : And because the said issue above joined between the parties aforesaid ought to be tried by men of the county palatine of Lancaster (or “ Durham,"] that is to say, of the

And when the verification and issue aforesaid shall have been there made and tried, then the said justices shall send the record of the plaint aforesaid, together with every thing that shall be done thereupon before them, in her said majesty's court there, to our said lady the queen, [or in C. P. "to her said majesty's justices," or in Exch. “ to her said majesty's barons of her exchequer,"] at Westminster, at a certain day which the said justices shall appoint to the said parties, to be in her majesty's said court here, to hear judgment thereupon.
