Report of the Select Committee on the bill to set off real estate under execution, &c.

The select committee to whom was referred the bill to set off real estate under execution at a just appraised value, respectfully report. o they have had the bill referred to them under attentive consideration, as to both its principles and details. The bill proposes to enact, that whenever, the creditor, in any judgment obtained in a court of record, shall choose to issue his execution and to levy on the real estate of his judgment debtor, the same shall be set off to him at a just appraised value, towards satisfaction of his execution, free of all right of redemption on the part of the debtor, instead of being sold by the sheriff at public sale as formerly. The mode in which this shall be done, as pointed out by the bill, is, that the sheriff, after the levy has been made, shall give the same public notice of it, as he now does of his public sale of lands under execution. At the time and lace designated in such notice, three appraisers, reputable freeholders of the vicinity, shall be chosen, one by the creditor, another by the debtor, and the third or middle man by the sheriff having charge of the writ. These appraisers are to be sworn to make a fair, just and true appraisement of the real estate to be exhibited to them as the subject of the levy, and when so sworn, they are to proceed to make such an appraisement and to set off the real estate so appraised to the creditor, in satisfaction of his demand. This is the principle of the bill. Its details provide with some particularity for carrying out this principle. As this bill, if passed into a law, will supersede the present mode of satisfying demands in judgment, by a public sale of real estate, and effects in this respect an important and entire change in one branch of our collection laws, its minor provisions are consequently many. It is not necessary here to specify them. The bill will exhibit them. The committee have found no occasion for amendment in the bill, as it appears to be correctly drawn, and they agree with its principles. They will content themselves with making a sinle further remark as to its details, before they proceed to furnish to the Senate their reasons for approving of and recommending the adoption of its principle. No additional cost or legal sees are imposed by this bill. On the contrary, while all due publicity is iven to proceedings under it, while provision is made for security of title consequent on the change of property, suitable guards instituted to protect the relative rights of all parties thereto and the remedy extended to every kind of real estate, whether consisting of lands and tenements or rights and interests therein or
