Prehension, applied to things, will be with reference to—
1. A thing immoveable; as a house, or portion of land.
2. A thing moveable; as a horse, a cart, a bed, a painting or other product of the fine arts.
3. A stock of things moveable; such as the whole or any part of a man’s agricultural stock, or trading stock.
In each of these cases, it may be to be prehended, with or without things which in relation to it are termed appurtenances, as being in use with it.
In each case, the prehension-mandate will contain the instruction requisite for distinguishing the prehendendum, and prescribe the disposition to be made of it.
It may be, that either the existence of the subject-matter of the proposed prehension, or the place in which it is lodged, is to the judge a matter of doubt. In so far as this is the case, search for it is necessary to be made.
Of the purposes for which search may be made, examples are the following:—
I. As to persons.
1. A person whose forthcomingness is desired in the character of a defendant.
2. A person whose forthcomingness is desired in the character of a witness.
3. A person in relation to whom a suspicion is entertained, that he or she is illegally detained against his or her will; or though it be not against his will, if within age of lawful consent, by reason of infirmity of mind or body unable to give valid consent.
4. A person in relation to whom a suspicion has place, that although not illegally detained, he or she is kept in a state of undue seclusion.
II. As to things moveable
1. A thing in relation to which a suspicion has place, that it has been the subject-matter of delinquency: for example, in the shape of theft, or embezzlement, or wrongous deterioration.
2. Or that, in relation to delinquency in any shape, or right in any shape, it would serve as a source of written or real evidence.
3. A navigable vessel, or vehicle, in relation to which a suspicion has place, that on search it would be found to be a receptacle containing any such subject-matter of delinquency, or source of evidence, as above.
III. As to things immoveable.
1. A piece of ground, or building, for example, in relation to which, a suspicion has place, that on search it would, in some part of it, serve as a source of real evidence.
2. A piece of ground, or building, for example, in relation to which a suspicion has place, that on search therein would be found some moveable thing which has been the subject-matter of delinquency, as above; or a thing which would, as above, serve as a source of written or real evidence.
Prehension applied to persons.
Antecedently to the definitive decree, by necessity alone is arrestation of the person justifiable, or permitted.
The cases in which arrestation is ordained or permitted are those in which, but for the security thus afforded, a preponderant probability has place, that the giving execution and effect to the ordinances of the substantive law which are in question, would not be practicable.
Arrestation may have place for any of the purposes following:—
1. Punishment: in the case in which, in virtue of a judicial decree, a person having been sentenced to be subjected to corporal punishment in any shape, he not being in the power of the judicatory at the time, to subject him to the obligation imposed upon him by his sentence, the performance of this operation is necessary.
2. Stoppage of mischief, or say mischief-stopping.
3. Securing forthcomingness for justiciability; i. e. the being in an effectual manner subjected to such obligation as in the case in question the law may require the person of the party to be subjected to.
4. Securing forthcomingness on his part, for the purpose of evidence, or say of testification, for the purpose of his being subjected to interrogation in the character of a relating witness.
5. Recaption after escape.
Conditions necessary to justify the issuing of a warrant of arrestation.
On the part of him, who for the purpose of securing payment for debt, or the performance of any other service beneficial to himself, at the hands of the individual proposed to be arrested, requires arrestation to be made of any person by a warrant from the judge, a judicial declaration in writing to the following effect is necessary:—
I, A. P. do solemnly and judicially declare as follows:—
1. , in virtue of NA stands bound to render to me a certain service, the value of which, over and above that of any service claimed by him at my hands, is not less than [NA].
2. It is my sincere apprehension and belief, that unless without delay his person be arrested, and placed at the disposition of this or some other judicatory, he will, by withdrawing his person or property, or both, out of the reach of this or any other judicatory belonging to this State, effectually, in the whole or in part, evade the performance of the aforesaid service.
3. I acknowledge myself informed, that in the event of my being convicted of wilful falsehood or culpable rashness in respect of this my declaration, I shall, by the sentence of the law, be compelled to make full compensation to the individual thus injured by me, as also to undergo such ulterior punishment under the name of punishment as the law ordains; and in the event of my not being able to render such compensation, to undergo any such punishment as in lieu thereof the law has provided.
4. Moreover, that whatever may be the value of any service really due to me at the hands of the aforesaid , still, if for the belief, that the arrestation hereby prayed for is necessary to prevent such evasion as above, there be not seen sufficient ground, I stand exposed to the burthen of compensasation or punishment, or both, as the case may be.
In case of mere rashness, the burthen will not go beyond the full amount of compensation; in case of wilful falsehood, punishment added to the above burthen will be severe.
Of seizure, viz. of property, moveable or immoveable.
Seizure of things, moveable or immoveable, may have place for any one of the purposes following, viz.—
1. Punishment, viz. of the individual whose property is seized.
2. Stoppage of mischief; the property in question being either a subject-matter, or an instrument of the mischief.
3. Securing forthcomingness for justiciability.
4. Securing forthcomingness for testification; that is to say, for the exhibition of circumstantial evidence.
