Fayment may be pleaaed in an action on a bond for the payment of money, though not made strictly according to the condition ; and if the amount due thereon be paid after the commencement of suit, and before judyment, the action will be discontinued.

The sum equitably due, by virtue of the condition of a bond, may De set off in any action where a set-off is allowod.

A bond required by law to be given, will be deemed sufficient, if it conform substantially to the form thereof prescribed by the statute, and do not vary in any matter, to the prejudice of the rights of the party to whom, or for whose benefit, such bond shall be given.

The amount of the judgment rendered on a bond conditioned for the payment of money, is the penal sum, wbich is usually double the amount of the condition, in order to cover interest and costs.

A joint and several bond and warrant of attorney, signed by three persons, will not authorize a separate judgment against one but only a joint judgment against all.

An action on a sealed instrument must be brought within twenty years after a right of action accrues.

A bottomry bond is an obligation founded on the joint security of a ship and its owners, and given for money borrowed, which is to be repaid on the successful termination of a voyage. At home, the bond is executed by the owners, or the master, as their agent. In a foreign country, the master has full authority to bind the owners, and pledge the ship and cargo, by a bottomry bond, in cases of necessity. Any amount of interest may be exacted, so long as the sea risk continues, irrespective of the usury laws; but when that terminates, the obligation will only draw legal interest. Respon dentia is a contract similar to bottomry, except that the loan is made upon the chance of the safe arrival of the cargo. Like bot tomry, it is used in cases of emergency
