Alnncc-Lori-iIn CiisttoniN Trctily. rarij Correspondence (Oct. 7,) of London MaiL After passing tnrough endless vicissitudes, the wearisome evacuation treaty seem9 at last in a lair way nt last of struggling through to its final termination. At the risk of boring your readers, r.s we shall soon have n treaty of our own to dis cuss with I-ranee, I think it may be proGtable to explaio the present stage of this effort or diplo macy, in the hope that the lessons which it teach es may not be lost in future negotiations with the French Government. I do not mean for a mo ment to imply any want of p-ood faith or cood will on the part of the latter, but simply to point out how. the relations which it occupies to the Chamber nnd to the country cramp and fetter iti action at every moment, rendering most difficult and unsatisfactory the task of any diplomatist who may suddenly nnd unexpectedly find jost when lie thinks everything is settled that he has to begin all over again. First it is the Oh-iinlm nlilcli uppt9 all tho nrntniremciiU painfully arrived at by negotiators ; then it is a depulation of manufacturers who bring such pres sure upon tho government that it takes fright and draws back in alarm; then tho bankers obstinate ly combine to render every money arrangement which would suit tho two countries impossible ; and lastly, thero is that constant dread every French .Minister has of public opinion, which, as it is a combination of ignorance, prejudice and impulse, he U always wrong to regard, and only strong in defying. All theso influences tend to render French diplomacy in its present phase weak and vaccillating, though it is thoroughly well-intentioned and quite as honest as any other diplomacy. Considering the exceptional condi tions under which tbo negotiations are being con ducted, it is the duty of those Powers who have to treat with this Government to strengthen its hands a3 much as possible, having regard to tho peculiar difficulties by which it is surrounded. and making allowances for the complications in which it is involved. It is duo to Count Arnun to say that this spirit of consideration has animated theso tedious negotiations on Lis side, while on the other, Jl. de Remusat nnd JI. Pouyer'Quer tier have shown untiring patience and temper in meeting the perpetually recurring difficulties which have arisen from unexpected quarters to thwart their efforts. After the vexed commer cial question arising out of the insertion of tho third clause by tho Chamber wa3 finally settled v-y Germany allowing a curtailment of tho time duVng which the reduction of the frontier duties was t, fast, and by verbal alterations whiclrwere calculated to meet the difficulties which that clause created, suddenly up stunts a now and un expected obst.clo in regard to the modo of pay ment. The French Government proposed treas ury bonds guaranteed by bankers, whilo tho Ger man Government insnted npon bills of exchange. The objection which the latter made to treasury bonds wa3 that in the event of a chnngo of gov ernment occurring, or in the event of tho arrange ment being repudiated by the Chamber on tho grounl that n, eriuing Government had no right to incur this responaimi,,, n, , tho Government itsolf bo released from the obli gation of paying, but tho endorsers would also lie released, while in the case of bills of exchange, thoresponsibility of the endorser would remain absolute, even thou?" the acceptor, from some exceptional causa might escapo that responsibil ity. Hut in lib case of bills of exchango, both Government wero instantly mot by the bankers who abs'lutely and decidedly refused to consent to gi'U paper to tho amount of 650,000.000 of frdics to the German Government, even though the latter promised not to put it into oxecntion, and it must be acknowledged that their objection was not without force. "If the German Govern ment will put it clause into the treaty," said they, 'stipulating that under no circumstances shall these bills be negotiated, we do Dot mind giving them to the amount required." But as I ho very reason why tho German Government insisted up on having bills ol exchange was in order to have the power, in the event of a revolution or a vio lent change in France, of putting them on tbe market, it was quito evident that they could not agree to slipulato tho exact contrary. On the other band, it is clear, that notwithstanding any mere verbal promise not to negotiate tho paper except under certain circumstances, when once it wa3 in the bands of Prince Bismarck with fac ulty of circulation, it wo3 iu fact tantamount to being actually in circulation ; and 650,000,000 of francs is a sum which, when it may possibly be put upon the market at any moment in addition to the usual amount of paper out, was sufficient to injure the credit of the strongest house. On these grounds tbe bankers were inexorable in their refusal to grant bills of exchange for that amount, but the French Government took anoth er objection to this course. If, they argue, our Minister of Finance give3 Prince Bismarck 650, 000.000 of negotiable bills payable in gold, and the latter should find it necessary or convenient for political purposes to negotiate theso bills, he would suddenly withdraw from circulation 650, 000,000 of bullion, nnd this amount might disap pear in tho vaults of the treasury at Berlin, but when the bills came to maturity, a3 they are made payable in gold, the French Government would have to provide for a further sum of 650,000, 000 of coin to bo put into circulation, so that there would be a currency disturbance to the va- he of 1,300,000,000 of francs in gold instead of 650,000,000, and tho price of gold would be pro portionately enhanced. For these reasons the French Government finally declined the mode of payment 'proposed by the Germans, which they seemed in tho first instances disposed to agree to before the objections arose, and which only be came apparent at tbe last moment. Still, it was evident that they were not of a nature which shonld cause them to ba considered insuperable, and the patient negotiators once more cast about for a means of escape from the dilemma. It wa3 at this juncture that it seemed advisable that J!. Ponyer Quertier, armed with full powera, shonld go to Berlin, where a personal interview with I'riuce Bismarck might have the effect of induc ing the latter to consent to some plan by which the requirements of the two governments, and above all, of tbe bankers, should be met. In deed, so long as it was a question of mere diplo macy this step did not seem necessary, diplomat ists being, as a rule, accustomed to compromises and not altogether insensible to sentimental con siderations. The men who hold the purse-strings of Europe however, are made of sterner stuff, and being in the constant presence of those vital in terests, higher oven than those of country, by irsnnnTTi iS6.00 PER YEAR which the humblest of us is so closely affected, nate learnt to defendthem with a jealous and and unyielding eolicitnde. The occasion was. there fore deemed one in which it was necessary that the great Chancellor himself should interpose, uhu it is presumed mat even in the case of bant ers he will not interpose in vain. The present schemo of JI. Ponyer Quertier is to offer the German Government bills of exchange with power of negotiating them, provided tbe xrenen uovernment shall not have naid them fifteen days before they come due, the latter hav ing the right to anticipate their payment to any extent, it 13 not unlikely that the payments will bo made in instalments of 65,000,000 every lormigut that is, one-tnnth of the whole amoun so that the payment will always be a fortnight in auance,and it it 13 not made then thesnm in circulation would only bo 65.000.000 instead ol 650.000.000, an amount so modest that the largest banking houses in Europe can hardlv object to it on the score of its being likely to i'n- j .re t.ieir credit. It was indeed susrjMsted that tho French Government should accept the pro posal of paying, in treasury bonds and add a stip ulation in the treaty to the effect that in the event of the present form of Government being mouineu or overthrown, tho German army should have the right of re-occupying the departments. I bis would have offered a guarantee of a very special kind for tho stability of the present gov ernment, and possibly one not altogether to the ta3te of the French people, and it was dismissed almost without consideration, JI. deEemusal clev erly remarking in regard to it that it reminded him of a marriage contract with a clauso provid ing for the chance3 of divorco inserted in it. A JIachine that cam Talk, Laum asd Sixo. A persevering Frenchman once made a machine in the form of a duck, which could walk, clap its wings, peck up grains of corn, and more wonder ful still, digest them ; but a machine capablo of talking was supposed .to rank among the impossi bilities of human ingenuity to construct. Kem pelen, a German, made a number of puppets that uttered the words "papa"' and "mamma," but af ter devoting hi3 lifa to perfecting them, he assert ed that a machine which could utter all the words in use in European languages wa3 an impossibili ty. After his death his puppets became dumb, no one understanding the mechanism by which they were made to speak. Kempelen's impossi bility has been at last overcome. In 1841 Prof. Fabcr exhibitetl a machine which could utter a great number of words and sounds, but it was by no means perfect. His nephew took up tho ma chine that his uncle had failed in perfectimr and completed it. After exhibiting it beforo all tho crowned heads and scientific societie3 of Europe, he brought it to the United States aud recently gavo an exhibition of it. The machine, which stands on a small table, consists of a complicated arrangement of rubber tubes, reeds, keys, pedals, strings and wires. The lungs aro represented by a small pair of bellows, the glottis by reeds and pipes of different sizes, tho lips und tongue by a pedal by which the bellows aro worked, and on the right hand side a series or keys, on which are markod tbe letters 0. TJ. I. K. L. It. W. F. S. B. D. and G. With these and some supplementary arrangements, all sounds used in tho European languages can bo enunciated. Thero is also an arrangement resembling the key-board of a piano by which the machine can bo made to sing. Ev ery portion of it is open to view, so that no decep tion is possible, and tho machine under the skill ful hands of .Madame Faber enunciated distinctly all the letters of the English t.nd German alpha bets, numerous long and most difficult words, such u3 "Constantinople," "Politzka," "JIissi3 sippi," "Iitidetzky," "hurrah." and then darted off into loag sentences in English, German and French, winding up with a laugh of the most natural kind, followed by hi33!r, groan3 and mur murs. Every word proposed was pronounced at once and without the slightest hesitation. Of courso some words were more clearly enunciated than otber3, but tbo majority were given far more clearly than the majority of human being3 pro nounce them, and even the nassal twang which French people often adopt was closely imitated. In Prof. Faber's machine the motions of tho mouth anil tongue imitate precisely those of hu man beings, and tho different keys or tone3 are given by proper manipulation of the pedals. The " talking machine," taken all together, is a won derful specimen of man's ingenuity, but whether it can ever be anything more is doubtful. It can not be applied to any practioal purpose, unless dumb or weak nerved and feeble-voiced individu als should choose to purchase them and use them as mediums tbrongh which to address the pub lic. Tbe singing portion of the machine not be ing in order, it was of courso impossibla to deter mine what merit the invention possesses as a vo calist. Prof. Faber intends to exhibit his machine in public as soon as his unhingements aro com pleted. Vegetable Leather. "Vegetable Leather" is a material which so closely resembles tho natu ral product that it i3 only by actoal examination that tlia difference can be ascertained. Caout chouc and naptha are used in its manufacture ; but by a proces3 which we have never seen described, all odor is removed from tho naptha, and the emell or vegetable leather is rendered thereby less in strength, if anything, than that of leather. This material 13 used for book binding, covering library tables, and like purposes. Among other advantages which it possesses over leather proper may be mentioned that, however thin the imitation i3, it will not tear without con siderable force is exercised ; that it resists all damp, and the moisture may be left on it for any period without injury; consequently it does not sodden or cockle, is always dry, and its polish is rather increased than diminished by friction, and any attempt to raze or scratch it3 surface with the nail, or contact with any ordinary substance will not abrade it. Tbe largest entire pieces of real leather that can be cut from a bullock's hide are not more than seven feet by five, and this includes the belly and other inferior parts. Vege table leather, on the contrary, is capable of being produced fifty yards in length, and one and a half yards wide, every portion of it being of equal, and of any required thickness, which may bo carried to any extent by additional backing of linen, etc., cemented with the caoutchouc, and its strength is something marvelous, while, in the all important commercial view, it is but one-third the price of leather.

Singular Rfxigiocs Sect. It is said that la Jlifflin, Juniata and Snyder Counties, Pennsyl vania, are large numbers of a singular sect called Ornish. Theso peoplo somewhat resemble the Dunkers in their religious belief, bat their cus toms include many peculiarities characteristic ef themselves alone. They exceed the Quakers in their simplicity of dress. Tbo men fasten their attiro with hooks and eyes, and look upon but tons as an abomination in tho sight of tho godly ; tho women wear a blue cotton dress, the waist of which comes just below tbo armpits, while their beads are covered with closo fitting white sksll cap3 which give their faces a ghastly appearance Thoy have no poor among them; scoffers say It is because when one of their number becomes poor they turn him oat of the society, but that is a slander, for they are not oniy thrifty, bat char itable, never refusing to entertain a stranger with out money and without price. They forswear all things that partake of worldly vanity, praetleo tho right of baptism, immersion, and ctrlebfa'.o the Lost Supper in mutton broth. Tub bfst Way to Advertise.

Journal of Comment. Babsu IX a Fix. When George Wood was about to open bis Museum, Barnaul's last MoGin was. burned. Wood, fearing that Baraam wwkl erect a new Museum up town, contracted te pay him 312,000 per year for ten years on cmMNtifta that he would not open asy place of auiQseaest in New York during tnat time.
