Where the Court had appointed a cause to be tried by a jury and after the case had been made a remanet to the following.

This cause had been set down for trial by a jury last term, but had been made a remanet. Since then the Jury Act, 10 Geo. 4 No. 8 (1829), had expired and now the Court gave leave to have the case tried by a new jury under the new Jury Act, 2 Wm 4 No. 3 (1832) and ordered the trial to be postponed until the jury process under that Act could be issued. The new Act came into operation on the first of this month. (Wardell for one of the parties.)
