woman, who was condemned to

perior Court ol L,aw in and t• *r the
Borough, separate and distinct from
that of the coun y as already estab
lished by law, with such provisions
in relation to the same, as may be
found uecessary and proper in the
case, is reasonable/
The House loncurred in this reso
lution, and ordered a bill to be brought
in accordingly. -
Mr. Blackburn, f om the Commit
tee for Courts of Justice, made a re
' port of two resolutions: 1st, ‘that
the petition of George Winston and
Pleasant Winston, praying for rea*
-sons therein set forth, that the fur
ther time of two, three, and four
years may be allowed them to satisfy
the judgment rendered in the Gene
ral Couit, in June, 1818, against
James A.Campbell, agent of the Pe

Another resolution reported by the

concurred in the resolution,
A resolution was also reported

ruary, April, July, and October in
©very year, instead of llie times now
pre-crib«‘d by law. The House con
curred in this resolution.
Ob Mr* Blackburn’s motion, the
committee of the whole House was
discharged from farther considering
the hill * for the relief of Robt. Duu
tliat'_and it was ordered to be en
grossed and read the third time. It
will be recollected, that this subject
was made the order of the day for
this day; but from the remarks
thrown out yesterday, it appeared
that one gentleman in opposition to
the bill was not ready to go into the
argument, and that the question will
not probably be taken up for seveial
On Mr. Davenport's motion, the
House came to the resolution to pro
ceed jointly with the Senate, on the

Patent Elastic Saddles.
The complaint against hard and uneasy
saddles, which is for the most part a just
and general one, and is reaby a great grie.
vance to those who have mm h riding to
do, has caused him to turn In? mind par*
ticularly to that subject, with a view, i;
possible, to remedy the evil. He can
with confidence assure the public that he
has accomplished it. The plan projected
is by means of strong and well tempered
steel springs, so constructed as to support
the saddle seat and give much greater ease
to both rider and borse, than saddles made
in the common way or any other that he
ha? ever seen can possibly do. The plan
is entirely different from the English elas
tic saddles with spring bars ot steel,
whalebone, 4ic. and also from those with
wire springs, and he conceives much su
perior to either,a9 the elasticity is great

riginal form, will not be subject toburtiig
horses on journeys, which is complaint £
of in the saddles with spring bars A
| number of gentlemen have those saddles
now in use, and but one sentiment ex;6i»
among them in favor of their superiority
The invention is equally as applicab.e to
ladies’ saddles as to gentlemen’s. In
point of durabiliry they will be warranted
