At the trial of the case in the circuit court, under the issue formed upon the plea of payment, the defendant offered the record in the first suit, the execution thereon, the return of the sheriff that the same was satisfied by the defendants by the payment of Arkansas Bank paper, and also proof that the sheriff was specially instructed by the plaintiff through his attorney to receive such paper in payment and satisfaction of the judgment, as evidence to sustain the issue on his part; but the court, on motion of the plaintiff, excluded said records and evidence from the jury!
