It has been reported in New York that Mr.Everett and Mr. Crampton have actually, agreed upon the terms of a treaty embracing the subjects of the fisheries and commercial reciprocity, and perhaps some other subjects.

Upon the subject of n ruilroad through our own territory to the Pacific, they have recommended it both at this and the late session. It is rumored that the President will also send a special message to Congress,urging the importance of action, st the present session, on the subject.' It remains for Congress to adopt such measures as will en iblo the next administration tu take a proper course in regard to Mexico, and also to contract fur the commencement of the- Atlantic and Pacific railroad on the 4th of July next, or before, and its -completion in five years thereafter. , We are expecting a large concourse of visiters. , By the middle of Junuary the city will present a lively aspect. ...

The Qurt House was litterally crowded, and the concert gave general satisfaction, which waa manifested by frequent and long continued applause. The programme was an excellent one. . We think the Philharmonic Society did better than at any of their previous concerts and this ia saying a good deal. The Glee Club elicited a great deal of applause, it being their first appearance, and gave promise of a "better time coming" at the next concert. The interest of the performances was also increased by the music of the Lnncaster Band, ah entortainiwMit not promised in the bills of thd day.'

' ,: We were pleased to see the concert so liberally patronized. The music was vastly superior to nine-tenths of that floating thro' the country, and we are triad to see a dispo sition exhibited to apprtcinfe and prefer that which ia of a home growth. " It makes us feel that the "good time coming" is not afar off. The second concert of this aeries will be given in the course of three or four weeks with a change of programme. We understand that it will be varied with sever al of the popular pieces of the day,; which will doubtless tend to increase the attrac tion and add interest to the entertainment.

'; In competition with the Ohio riven as a com.nerciaf avenue, ii, will have the vast advantage of at least one hundred and sev enteen miles less distance between Cincin nati and Marietta, besides the yet more con siderable superiority of five, limes quicker speed of transit. .. It is computed upon reli able data, that the railway passengers from Cincinnati will be carried through lo the Baltimore and Philadelphia connections of the road in five hours; whereas, the travel by steamboat on the river with the most powerful vessels and the best stage of water, will require, at the least, twenty-four hours. So great a difference in the point of distance and speed, will cive a proportionate advan tage in respect of cheaper rates of convey ance; with all these several influences com bined iu favor f the Marietta road, none can doubt that it will appropriate a very large part of the transportation now accom plished by a comparatively slow and often obstructed navigation between Wheeling and the Queen City."

The follow ing true story is a new verification of the old adage, that "truth is stranger than fiction." A few weeks ago, Gen. Pierce received a suspicious looking box, per Cheney's Ex press, from the West. Supposing from his exalted position that some wicked Whig, or fanatical ubulilionist" might be plotting his destruction, he very naturally regarded this as an ivernal machine, intended to land him in glory before his time. Not feeling any great partiality for such an apotheosis, he, ordered this new Pandora's box to be stowed awsy in the barp,"unsight unseen," and strictly forbade any one to go near it. Thus itjremained eome'dsys, until one Sun day, when nobody was at home save Mr. W., the General's boarding master, who be- n" cxorciseJ thereto by a courageons and audable curiosity, determined to solve the 'infernal invstery." Accordingly, seizing a long-handled axe and placing himself at a rational distance he hurled the iron weapon with full fury into the box. After waiting in breathless expectation for the "machine" to explode, Mr. W. approached it, and dis covered (Jiorribiledictam.')lwo braceg of re markably fat ducks, and a hnunch ot veni son, sent to the President "elect, by an ad mirinc Catholic friend in Cincinnati, with a note accompanying, desiring to be remom bered in the division of the spoils! We need only add that, the only tfiing'infer nul" about the "machine" was an inodorous smell for which the ' reverent disciple - of His Holiness was in no way responsible. Concord Dcm.
