4. The supply of cadets being duly apportioned to the wants of the se, vice it will seldon happen it the above rule be carefully acted upon, that any one regionent has more. th one vacancy at a time and consequently that under ordinary circumstances no necessity will arise for the transfer of cornets or ensigns from one regimeu to another.

No cornet or cnsign is removeable for purposes of promo. tion except at his own request, and as there are difficulties in the way of ascertaining the wishes of individuals in this respect at the tune when conting, ney arises, we desi e that it be established as a regulation that every cornet or ensign who may wish to he noved to any corps by removal to which he would gain one e steps shall notifs his wish to that effect to the Adjutant
