-------THE BALTIC.

THE BALTIC. The Cronstadt journals mention an extraordinary subsidence of the waters of the Baltic in that lo- cality. It began in the evening, the wind being S.W. and rather fresh. At ten at night the level of the sea was a foot lower than ordinary, and continued still to sink. The following morning at six it was two feet below its normal point, the wind having veered round to the N.E.; and at two in the afternoon the greatest de- pression was arrived at, namely, three feet two inches. The water then began to mount rapidly, and during the night exceeded its ordinary level by a foot. Nearly all the steamers plying between Cronstadt and St. Petersburg were aground, a circumstance almost unprecedented. As to the cause of this phenomenon nothing is known but the supposition is that a strong N. E. wind drove the waters towards the Swedish, Danish, and Prussian coasts.
