The number of cadets is limited to two hundred and fifty. They may be attached, at the discretion of the President of the United States, as students to the military academy, and become subject to its regulations. They are arranged in companies of non-commissioned officers and privates, for the purposes of military instruction. There are four musicians to each company; and the corps is trained and taught all the duties of a private, a non-commissioned officer, and an officer ; is encamped at least three months of each year, and instructed in all the duties incident to a regular camp. Candidates for cadets must not be under fourteen, nor above twentyone years of age ; and each cadet, previously to his appointment by the President, must be versed in reading, writing, and arithmetic, and must sign articles, with the consent of his parent and guardian, thereby engaging to serve five years, unless sooner discharged. The pay of a cadet is sixteen dollars per month, and two rations per day. When any cadet has received a regular degree from the academic staff, after going through all

any corps, according to the duties he may be judged competent to perform;
and if there is not, at the time, a vacancy in such corps, he may be attached
to ït at the discretion of the President, by brevet of the lowest rank until a
