Such warrant shall be a lien upon and shall bind the personal property of each person against whom it shall be issued, from the time an actual levy shall be made by virtue thereof, and the sheriff to whom such warrant shall be directed shall proceed upon the same in all respects with the like effect and in the same manner as prescribed by law in respect to an execution issued against property upon a judgment rendered by a court of record, and shall be entitled to the same fees and costs for his services in executing the same, to be collected in the same manner.
