      SCHOONER M. S. SCOTT AT COWES. -- The Milwaukee Sentinel learns that the schooner M. S. SCOTT, Capt. Blend, of that port, which left in May last, with a cargo of selected lumber, arrived off Cowes, England, on the 25th of July. The SCOTT was only 15 days from land to land; 25 days from Quebec to Cowes, and 51 days from Milwaukee. But for the prevalence of light winds and fog, for two-thirds of the passage, the time would have been much less.
      As to the speed of the SCOTT, Capt. Blend writes that she beat everything she saw, except the yachts off Cowes, and even these had but little to brag of. In going up the channel the SCOTT passed upwards of 150 vessels, many of them fast sailers, but none a match for our Clipper Lake Schooners. Her sea-going qualities, Capt. Blend says are equal to her speed.
