 America in less than Four Days. - We are enabled to announce that by a new and much improved construction of vessels, it will be perfectly practicable to accomplish the voyage between the United States and the United Kingdom in considerably less than four days; in fact, in about three-and-a-half -the ports connecting the Old and New Worlds being Halifax and Galway.  This is a respeculative statement.  It is grounded on experiments which have already been made to test the sailing capabilities of vessels constructed on the ne??? principle.  With the submarine telegraph which is about to be laid down between
Halifax and Galway and the passage of vessels in three days and a half across the Atlantic, America and Great Britain will virtually become one colossal country, inhabited and governed by the Saxon race. - Morning Advertiser.
