rules, the mode and manner of presenting

such points, or questions to the court in

banc, and the decision of the said Court in

banc shall be the effective decision in the

premises, and conclusive, as against the

party, at whose motion said points, or

questions were reserved; but such decision

in banc shall not preclude the right of

Appeal, or writ of error to the adverse

party, in those cases, civil or criminal, in

which appeal, or writ of error to the Court

Delegates to the General Assembly, to be

held next thereafter, when a successor shall

be elected for the term of four years.

Sec. 26. The said Clerks shall appoint,
