Compromise to be by permission of court; order to bar another prosecution.

1. If the party injured appears before the court to which the depositions are required to be returned, at any time before trial, and acknowledges in writing that he has received satisfaction for the injury, the court may, in its discretion, on payment of the costs incurred, order all proceedings to be stayed upon the prosecution, and the defendant to be discharged therefrom; but in such case the reasons for the order must be set forth therein, and entered on the minutes.
