A Liverpool paper says :—" Great interert has been excited from the fact that live of the most celebrated clippers, two English and ? three American, are now on their way to this ? port and the port of London, with cargoes of 1 tea. Thoughthe time of starting differs, there will be opportunity sufficient afforded for test- ing the respective merits -and qualities of the craft. The Chrysolite, for Liverpool, and the Stornaway, for London, both English, sailed on the 4th of July. The Surprise and the Challenge, for London, and the Race Horse, for Liverpool, (all American,) sailed on the 15th of July. We may add that not a few wagers are pending on the result".
