Tbe sueei h which bis royal highness deli vered, communicated some pleving intelligence (he country. Besides announcing that the peace we enjoy is likely to remain undisturbed by any political events abroad, it confirmed the declaration made by the chancellor of the ex cb.eq.ncr some time since, " that toe revenue is a coarse of con' inued improvement." These two facts, alone, at peace with all the world, and increasing prosperity at home, are such ass u ran ces of positive good as cannot fail to make a due impression oo the country. At the same lime, the comparuoo instituted between the present stale ef Kurope, and what it was, when the late parliament first assembled, must have been no very gratifying topic of 'congratulation to those who used their beet efforts for preventing the ac complishment of those great events. We have received a r landers mail this morn ing. An article from Uruuels states, that the duke of Wellington has purchased the ancient hotel D'Oudcnarde, situated on Grand Sablon, with the intention of erecting a magnificent man sion on its scite,, for bis occasional residence in that city. A serious disturbance occurred in Louvaine the 51 h inrt. in consequence of a quarrel between some' young men and the military. Several of the citixeiu were wounded its the affray, order was happily restored by the cxertious the police, and the military authorities. 1 lie keys of the city of Ubent, which were sent to Paris in 1792, by general La Bourdon - uaie, have been restored by luis XV11I, in consequence of an application from the Dutch am bassador, baron Fagel. Loudon, June !. Paris Journals have arrived, extracts from which will be found in anoller column. These papers quote the rumour which we inserted yesterday from a Flemish print, that the Duke (if Wellington has purchased a great hotel at Brussels ; and further, that it is his Grace's intention to budd a country seat in the neighborhood of Waterloo, which b&s been erected into a principality. It is repeated that the or dinance of the King of fpain for establishing certain number ff free ports in his kingdoni has been suspended by counter orders from Madrid. 1 bis is complained ol by the ports question as an instance of undue partiality Us the merchants of Cadiz, whose services to the Court have been supposed to purchase them many former advantsges, at the expense of their commercial countrymen.

The number of ves sels which entered inwards before the 1st of June, 1817, was in all 600. To the same peri od of the present year there have not arrived more than 250 merchantmen. Part of this difference is, however, attributed to an exten sive corn speculation, which was carried on last year, and which produced a temporary influx of shipping to the port of Antwerp. The marriage of his Royal Highness the Duke of Kent with the Princess Maria Louisa Victoria, of Linanpen, sister of his Royal High ness Prince Leopold, of Saie - Coburg, was an nounced, on Thursday night, by his Hoyal Highness the Duke of Sussex, at a public din ner at the Frteruasons Tavern.

Patriot. TO ALL NAVIGATORS, From the Atlantic Oceaa to the western shores ol Europe ; but more particularly to those Great - Britain and the English and Uriftol channels. Causes of thewmerew th'pmtcki On the Stilly WaaJs, in - Mount's Bay, in Corn wall, and on the western coasts of Great Britain ; but more particularly iu the English channel. All vercels, which are bound to the western horcs of Great Britain, from the Atlantic Ocean, will always be subject to that disaster, without care and attention to the circumstances explain ed hereafter; for they will always be more or less ahead of their recitoaing, and of course will be liable to be oa sbore before tbey conjecture themselves to be near the land. Tbis was no doubt the cause of the lots of admiral Shovel, io i lie Association, with the Eagle and Romney in company, oo the S2d of October, 1707 ; for by onr naval history it appears they brought to on that day, and lay by till sort set, when thoy made sad lor the English channel, supjioniug, no doubt, they had space enough to run till day light, without getting into danger ; but they were cast away iu the night oa tlie Rocks of acilly, aud every soul penmed J whereas bad they souuded at sua scty piior. to their making sail, tbey might have kuosrn they had not sulh - cieat run for the night. The depth of water at sunset, to the best of recollection, which will insure them safety in the longest night's run to - ards the English channel, should be not less than 75 fathoms ; of court e, more than that depth, or having - no soundings, will put them out 61 all doubt ; but of this exact depth, at tention to iheir charts must caution them, lest my memory should be in error. The mischief arises from vessels persisting to run by their reckoning, without sounding ; more particularly they are tempted to this if tbey have had fine weather in navigating the Atlantic Ocean, and of course couDde more in their reckoning. - Tbs reasoo vessels coming from the westward will always be far ahead of - their reckoning, say KM leagues more or less, is owing to the eject of the Gulph of Florida streams ; and how that Operates I will endeavor to explain, hopicg the apparent simplicity of my description will be excused by all who think it Uerilly so, as it is meant to explain it to all capacities, and particularly to those who msy never have attended to i the geography of the coasts of Mexico. The Gulph of Florida stream runs with mors or less vel - icity, according fo circumstances, to be explained hereafter, from out of tbe Gulph of Mexico, between the Bahama islands and the coat of East Florida, and on its arrival as far north as tbe north part of the Bahama Inlands, it takes a more c - asterly direction, to restore tlie level of "the Atlantic ocean, deranged by the trade winds, as will appear hereafter ; and the influence it has in carrying vessels to the eastward faster than tbey seem to run by the log is, without doubt, the cause of the numerous accidents whicb bave already Lappened, and will happen in future, unless proper caution is observed. All geographers know that the winds, called trada winds, blow from tbe eastward, between lbs trepic of cancer and the tropic of Capricorn, generally about nine months in the year, and they era the cause of the Gulph of Florida tre3sss: for they drive before them all the surface of tbe Atlantic Ocean, and that with a re. lority, and ia a quantity greater or less, in pro - twrliatt to there strength. I bave beea la tbe Atlaahc Ocean, when, daring near two months, ww could not get ap a topsail, it blew so atroog ; At I have, sit another time, crossed tbe Atlantic Of cents, when, I may almost say, I cssold bave carried a lighted candle ia my hand, without a tan - tbera, all tie time, aad it wool d not hare blown out.

To explain this more familiarly, lei one oi us a basin with water opto the brim, then blow strong on the surface, and the water will run e - ver on the opposite side ot tne passu to wnicn blow, bv little waves raised 6v the blowing. Taka some ol tbe water out oi tne Dasin, ana then on the opposite side to that on which we blow, the little waves will raise arainst the side tbe basin, and the surface of the water being raised tberebr. it will find its level again by es. casing on the sides of the basin each way ; but let a card, or some outer opstacie, De pus ou ouc side, and the whole Quantity will escape the o - ther side, to preuuee a level, i usi to u n mm the water forced into the Gulph of Mexico by the trade winds; for, as it cannot find its level by escaping on both skies, from Use uuipn, ow - lo the norm coast ot eoutn. America, exieiu - ing so lar to tne eastwaro, as again o nirei u trade wiuds; it all, therefore, escapes ou the . ... .... . . .i north side, and takes its course alour the east coast of Florida, untd it passes the Bahama Isl ands, and then, as I have said, forces ill way into the Atlantic Ocean, to restore the level interrupted by the trade wiuds. It cannot escape between the ulanos. because it meets tne traue wiods again. This current it is, which forcing its way into the Atlantic Ocean, governs the na vigation of that sea, and carries vessels so mucn to the' eastward of their reckon in - , that they ap - proach the western shores of Europe before thev are aware of it: and the western very ire - queully proves so hazy and cloudy, that no ob servations can tie taaeo to correct ineir longitude, before they set into soundings. I have been iuformed, in tbe west of England, that vessel has been known (the name of which , was mentioned to me) to have run on shore on the north coast of Devonshire, with all her small sails set, in the night time, right before the wind But the frequency of wreck on those shoies, but too well ascertained by the melancholy ac counts which our naval history affords. Vessels should therefore, always sound at snuset, whenever they get with in one hundred leaeues of Sicily by their reckoning, when coming from the westward ; and the dopth of water, or bavin? no sounrtintrs, will ascertain what sail they may carry in the longest night, without getting into danger Letore morning. Rut the misfortune is, ves&ew wiU depend on their reckoning, and run for the English or British Channels witliout soundings, more es peciallv if they happen to have had mild wea ther on their voyace I, myself, in a two decl'.ed ship, was near bt ing on the rocks of 4'icilr. when cominir tiom the West Indies. The loss of die Alexander, EasMndiaman, off Portland, on the 25th of March, 1H16, when every soul on board pensh. - d, gave rise to the publication of these observations, which though they msyfrot l ossess mnch merit, it is hoped will not bring into contempt the humble ertionsof AN OU) SEAMAN DlEU, Last night, at Mount Vernon, in the vicioity of this city, Airs, niana Uliulon, wile ol nis excel lency governor Clinlou.
