Common Pleas of Philadelphia.
December Sessions, 1790.
In this cause, a Capias had issued, and bail was given to the sheriff; but on a citation to shew the casue of action, &c. before Mr. President Shippen, the defendant was ordered to be discharged on common bail. Before the citation, however, and without the knowledge of the defendant, the bail to the sheriff had entered special bail at the Prothonotary's office.
But on motion of Dallas, for the defendant, the Court directed an Exoneretur to be entered.
