And all officers who shall behave indecently or irreverently, at any place of divine worship, shall, if commissioned officers, be brought before a general court-martial, there to be publicly and severely reprimanded by the president; if non-commissioned officers or soldiers, every person so offending, shall, for his first offence, forfeit one-sixth of a dollar, to be deducted out of his next pay; for the second offence, he shall not only forfeit a like sum, but be confined for twenty-four hours ; and for every like offence, shall suffer and pay in like manner; which money, so forfeited, shall be applied to the use of the sick soldiers of the troop or company to which the offender belongs.

ART. 3. Whatsoever non-commissioned officer or soldier, shall use any profane oath or execration, shall incur the penalties expressed in the foregoing article; and if a commissioned officer be thus guilty of profane cursing or swearing, he shall forfeit and pay for each and every such offence two thirds of a dollar.

cashiered; if a non-commissioned officer or soldier, he shall suffer such punishment as shall be inflicted upon him by the sentence of a courtmartial.

Art. 2. Any officer or soldier, who shall behave himself with contempt or disrespect towards the general or other commander in chief of the forces of the United States, or shall speak words tending to his hurtor dishonor, shall be punished according to the nature of his offence, by the judgment of a court-martial.

ART. 3. Any officer or soldier, who shall begin, excite, cause or join in any mutiny or sedition in the troop, company, or regiment to which he belongs, or in any other troopor company in the service of the Uni. ted States, or in any party, post, detachment, or guard, on any pretence whatsoever, shall suffer deaths or such other punishment as by a courtmartial shall be infliacche

ART. 4. Any officer, non-commissioned officer, or soldier, who being present at any mutiny or sedition, does not use his utmost endeavor to suppress the same ; or coming to the knowledge of any intended mutiny, does not, without delay, give information thereof to his commanding officer, shall be punished by a court-martial with death, or otherwise, according to the nature of the offence.

ART. 5. Any officer or soldier who shall strike his superior officer, or draw or shall lift up any weapon, or offer any violence against him, being in the execution of his office, on any pretence whatsoever, or shall disobey any lawful command of his superior officer, shall suffer death, or such other punishment as shall, according to the nature of his offence, be inflicted upon him by the sentence of a court-martial.


Of inlisting soldiers. Art. 1. Every non-commissioned officer and soldier, who shall inlist himself in the service of the United States, shall at the time of his so inlisting, or within six days afterwards, have the articles for the government of the forces of the United States read to him, and shall, by the oficer who inlisted him, or by the commanding officer of the troop or company into which he was inlisted, be taken before the next justice of the peace, or chief magistrate of any city or town corporate, not being an officer of the army, or where recourse cannot be had to the civil magistrate, before the judge advocate, and in his presence shall take the following oath, or affirmation, is conscientiously scrupulous about taking an oath :

I swear, or affirm (as the case may be] to be true to the United States of America, and to serve them honestly and faithfully against all their inte. mies or opposers whatsoever, and to ovserve and obey the orders of the continental congress, and the orders of the generals and officers set over me by them.

Which justice or magistrate is to give the officer a certificate, signi. fying that the man inlisted did take the said oath or affirmation.

ART. 2. After a non-commissioned officer or soldier shall have been duly inlisted and swori, he shall not be dismissed the service without a discharge in writing; and no discharge granted to him shall be al. lowed of as sufficient, which is not signed by a field officer of the regiment into which he was inlisted, or commanding officer, where no field officer of the regiment is in the same state.


Musters and Furloughs. Art. 1. Every officer commanding a regiment, troop or company, shall, upon the notice given to him by the commissary of musters, or from one of his deputies, assemble the regiment, troop or company, under his command, in the next convenient place for their being mustered.

Art. 2. Every colonel, or other field officer commanding the regiment, troop or company, and actually residing with it, may give furloughs to non-commissioned officers and soldiers, in such numbers, and for so long a tiine as he shall judge to be most consistent with the good of the service ; but no non-commissioned officer or soldier shall by leave of his captain, or inferior officer commanding the troop or company (his field officer not being present) be absent above twenty days in six months, nor shall more than two private men be absent at the same time, from their troop or company, excepting some extraordinary occasion shall require it, of which occasion the field officer present with, and commanding the regiment, is to be the judge.

Art. 3. At every muster the commanding officer of each regiment, troop or company, there present, shall give to the commissary certifi cates, signed by himself, signifying how long such officers, who shall not appear at the said muster, have been absent, and the reason of their absence. In like manner, the commanding officer of every troop or company, shall give certificates, signifying the reasons of the absence of the non-commissioned officers and private soldiers ; which reasons, and time of absence, shall be inserted in the muster-rolls, opposite to the names of the respective absent officers and soldiers. The said certificates shall, together with the muster-rolls, be remitted by the commissary to the congress, as speedily as the distance of place will admit.

Art. 4. Every officer who shall be convicted, before a general courtmartial, of having signed a false certificate, relating to the absence of either officer or private soldier, shall be cashiered. :

ART. 5. Every officer who shall knowingly make a false muster of man or horse, and every officer or commissary, who shall willingly sign, direct or allow the signing of the muster-rolls, wherein such false muster is contained, shall, upon proof made thereof by two witnesses, before a general court-martial, be cashiered, and shall be thereby utterly disabled to have or hold any office or employment in the service of the United States.

Art. 6. Any commissary who shall be convicted of having taken money, or any other thing by way of graitfication on the mustering any regiment, troop or company, or on the signing the muster-rolls, shall be displaced from his office, and shall be thereby utterly disabled to have or hold any office or employment under the United States.
