SAMUEL S. PHELPS, Assistant Justices.


The plaintiff in ejectment on mortgage, when defendant obtains a decree of

foreclosure and time to redeem, is entitled to tako his writ of possession and execution for costs on the expiration of the time set for redemption and the

terms of the decree not complied with. The day of the expiration of the time set for redemption, is the day of final

judgment; and the day following, being the first day on which plaintiff is entitled to execution, is the first of the sixty days within which plaintiff must aver a non est inventus return on the same in order to charge bail on

mesne process. The bail in such caso are not discharged by the operation of the decree either

on the ground that it extends the time more than sixty-days from the rendition of final judgment, or that tho costs are inerged in the decree.

This was an action of scire facias against bail on mesne process. The original suit was ejectment for lands mortgaged by one Guy C. Burnham, to the plaintiffs. The body of the mortgagor being attached, this defendant become bail. After judgment for the plaintiffs in the original suit against Burnham for the seizin and possession of the premises demanded, he interposed his motion under our statute for time to redeem, upon which the usual decree was made and the usual time given. After the expiration


Orvis vs.

CHITTENDEN, of the year given to redeem, and no redemption, the plaintiffs, in January,

less than thirty days, caused the writ of possession and execution Emerson & for costs, to be put into the hands of a proper officer and a non

est inventus to be duly returned. The declaration was drawn Washburn. with usual formality. The defendant in the court below de

murred generally and the plaintiffs joined.

The county court rendered judgment that the declaration is sufficient and the plaintiff recover, to which the defendant took exceptions and the question comes before this court for revision.

Mr. Hill for defendant.—1. In this case the scire facias was not issued within one year from the time of rendering the final judgment which is necessary._Rev. Stat. p. 66, sec. 29.

2. The execution must be taken out within thirty days from the time final judgment is rendered and put into the hands of some officer proper to levy and serve the same.—Rev. Stat. p. 68, sec. 34-do. p. 87, sec. 95-do. 93, no. 8.

3. The decree includes the amount due in the condition of the mortgage deed, and the cost of suit. The court can make no other valid decree in the case. They have got the land and that discharges the bail.—Rev. Stat. p. EO, sec. 76—do. p. 95, no. 13.

4. The judgment in the action of ejectment is satisfied by their taking the land, and if they prove any further claim they must sue Burnham, and cannot pursue the bail.—3d Vt. R. 581.

Mr. Maeck for plaintiff. The declaration being demurred to generally, the only question is, whether it sets forth in substance a good cause of action against the defendant. It is believed that the defendant can raise but iwo objections of any plausibility against the plaintiff's action. 1. That the execution did not in fact issue within thirty days from the time judgment was actually rendered. 2. That plaintiffs having taken possession of the land, it operates as a satisfaction of the debt and costs against his principal.

The first objection might be easily answered independent of the act of 1804, Stat. p. 98. But that statute, framed for the purpose of meeting this case among others, affords a conclusive answer to the objection. This act enacts that the day on which a plaintiff shall first be entitled to his execution on a judgment in his favor, shall be deemed as the time in which judgment is rendered for the purpose of charging the bail. The act embraces this case, and the plaintiff's declaration shows he has complied with its provisions.
