An Ocean Race.

Great interest was felt in New York (says the correspondent of the ‘Daily News’) as to the result of the ocean race between the City of New York and tho Teutonic, which was decided recently, when the City of New York passed Sandy Hook, her rival following 33min later. Both were far from beating the best record of the City of Paris, which is 5d 23h 3; min. The time of the City of New York was fid 14h, and that of tho Teutonic fid 14h 33min; but the distance run by the City of New York was ten miles longer than that of her rival.
