Road Viewers. ; At uie opening i ot the present term of Court, his Honor, Judge Jessup, in his usual clear, perspicuous, and busi less-like manner, commended to tlie consideration of the Grand Jury, the recent enactment relative to' road and bridge views &.;. in Susquehanna County. This Act tock effect on the eighth day of April, 1846, and consequently tlie reports of road-viewerls, returnable to this Term, were, in the language of the Court, " set aside, a new application being allowed upon the original petition." This may seem hard in some canes, but as the old Sjawlras it, "law is law and must have its course in mending the ways of mankind." . The act is a good one, le ading to greater efficiencies and less expense, than was formerly created, and.we doubt not will meet the approval of the people, " both in principle and detail." For- the better information of our readers, then, we transcribe the Act, «*s passed April 8th, 1846, £0 far as amended and applies to: th...
