The passage of the clipper ship Red Jacket from New York, was over 15 days. She sailed from New York on the afternoon of Jan. 9, and arrived off the Bell Buoy on the evening of the 24th. We do not know the precise hour when she left or arrived, but we have seen the report of the New York pilot, who carried her to sea, and know by the Liverpool papers that she arrived on the 24th. The report, therefore, that she made the passage in 13 days, was a mistake.
