Passed December

    WHEREAS before the commencement of the act for the better administration
of justice in the several counties of this state, the justices
of Harford county court, at their meeting in the month of February
last, omitted to adjourn the said court, whereby all causes, pleas, process and proceedings,
both civil and criminal, in the same court depending, were discontinued,

which were depending, and undetermined, in the said county court, at their
said meeting in February, shall be continued to the next county court, to be held
for the said county on the second Monday in March next, and shall be adjudged
and taken, to all intents and purposes, to be in the same state and condition, at
the said term in March next, as if the said court had been adjourned as by law
required, and the said causes, pleas, process and proceedings, regularly and lawfully
continued from term to term; and that the justices of the said county court
may, at their said next term, proceed to hear and determine, or further continue,
and thereafter hear and determine, the said causes, pleas, process and proceedings,
respectively, as the case may require, as fully and effectually as the same might
or lawfully could have been done at their term in March last, if the said discontinuances
had not happened:  Provided nevertheless, that in case any plaintiff or
plaintiffs in any suit or suits so discontinued, hath or have renewed his or their
action or actions, and caused the defendant or defendants therein to be arrested,
such action or actions shall not be taken or deemed within the provisions of this
act.

justice alone, or his associates, are hereby authorised and required to meet, and
hold a court, on the second Monday of December next, for the purpose of taking
bond from the sheriff of the said county, and his securities, and that the bond
so taken shall be as good and available, to all intents and purposes, as if the
justices aforesaid had adjourned the said court to the second Monday in December
aforesaid, and then met and taken the same.
