Extract of a Letter from Zachary Taylor, Addressed to a Gentleman of Iowa, April 12, 1848.

The following extract of a letter from General Taylor was written on the 12th of April, and addressed to a gentleman of Iowa:

"I now consider myself in the hands of the People — a portion of whom, at least, have placed my name before the country fat the office in question, and who alone are authorized to withdraw it from the canvass; which they ought to do, provided they can fix on any other who would be more available, and better qualified to serve them, and cast their votes for him at the proper time. And should they succeed in electing, I shall neither be disappointed nor mortified at the result; on the contrary, if he is honest, truthful, and patriotic, I will rejoice at the same."
