When the officer has discharged the defendant from arrest under mesne process, upon giving bond as provided in this article, he shall so return on the process to the court or judge issuing the same, and shall also return therewith the inventory and bond taken by him pursuant to this article. The plaintiff may thereupon proceed to judgment, and have execution against the personal and real property of the defendant, as in other cases.
