DEAR SIR — I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your favor of the 8th of October, conveying to me a copy of the proceedings of a meeting of my Whig friends at Waynesburgh, Pa.

I have read the resolutions adopted by the meeting with great pride and pleasure, and I beg you to convey to the members of the meeting, on a suitable occasion, my thanks for the distinguished honor they have so flatteringly bestowed upon me, and my assurance thus I have no wish or intention of changing the position in which I stand towards the people of the country in relation to the Presidency, or the course which I have felt it my duty to pursue.

My thanks are due to you for the copy of your


letter to the Hon. Mr. Seaman, of New York, (Addressed to the New York Mirror.)

I remain, dear sir, with high respect,
Your most obedient servant,
Z. TAYLOR, Com. Maj. Gen. U. S. Army.

To the Hon. Andrew Stewart.
