A letter from Capt. D.N. Malott, of the bark RAVENNA, which left here a short time since for Europe, has been received at the Marine Reporters Office announcing the arrival of that vessel at Liverpool on the 18th of July, after a remarkably quick passage. The time occupied in performing the voyage from Milwaukee to Liverpool, including stoppages and detentions, was 48 days; from Detroit in 43 days; from Quebec 24 days and from land to land in 11 1/2 days. She had splendid weather nearly the whole distance, being compelled on only one occasion to take in the topgallant sail. At sea there was considerable fog, and occasionally icebergs were passed. A number of vessels left Quebec in company with the RAVENAA, also bound for Liverpool, but none had arrived at the date of his letter. A fine ship, the BUSHIRE, kept in company with the RAVENNA until an increase in wind came on, when the latter soon parted company with her and shortly left her out of sight.
