This is loud talking, when it is borne in mind that the celebrated steamer Great Britain is up for the same port, and has been recently refitted to render her equal to a clipper under canvass alone, and that hse advertises to return to a clipper under canvass alone, and that she advertises to return 40s per ton of freight, if her passage exceed 65 days. Still, we think, notwithstanding all her advantages, the Sovereign of the Seas will beat her handsomely.
