0O"Tbe following letter is in answer to
an article of ours published some days tine,
in which we proposed to draw all Western
trade away from Philadelphia. The paper
spoken of ha not yet arrived. When it
come we may have something farther to
ssy Id regard to the Erie difficulties Wa
ar always willing to give both aide
hearing. The letter wa written to a gen
t'.eman of this city:
Philadelphia, Jan. 30, 1854.
Dear Sir: Wa received this day a copy
of the Lancaster Gazelle, containing th
record of rather bitter feeling toward us of
Fenn. in relation to tne Erie trouble. We
mail with thia letter a copy of our U. State
Gazette, containing the proceeding of a
meeting held here at the instance of the
people of Erie. We hope you will read it
all carefully and (how it to the Editor of the
Gazette who,- we trust, is not so far preju
diced a to refuse to listen, but will give an
impartial hearing to both sides.
' The limits of this lotter which has some
other objects in view, will not permit us to
discuss the question at length, yet we msy
take tho opportunity to say a few word.
We are well aware of the feelings with
which we are regarded not only by the New
Yorkers but by our -former good friends in
Ohio.' These feelings did extend somewhat
into Indiana, but we are happy to observe
I that the journals of that State could not re-
MMlnejoreeoj irum, out nave at last uone
ue justice in their leading articles, and we
hesitate not to say the journalists and peo
ple of Ohio will ere long do the same, freely
and openly. We understand it well that
New York is a bitter rival, and unscrupu
lous at all times, and especially so to this
city in regard to the Western trade, is, now
doubly maddened at being foiled by the peo
ple of Erie in an unjust attempt on their
corporate rights, and are now seeking sym
pathy abroad because that resistance hss
been carried into open aggression. We
cannot, and do not defend aggression on the
part of Erie. On tne contrary, we heartily
condemn it; but we . cannot shut our eyes to
the first cause of injustice on tba part of N.
York. And this comprises all of our position
in Philadelphia. Not oue man, to our know!
edge, at least, not one merchant ha aided
or abetted Erie either by' word or deed;
and we nave ret to find out that one dollar
has been raised for that purpose here. ' '
Our community has been besought, again
and again, to take sides and condemn Erie
from the beginning openly, and it ha been
urged with equal force lo side with Erie in all
Truth ie never found in extreme o we
have resolved on being j'w and have main

laws decide the right. Having thus far been

It ia no longer a time to talk of peace when
