OCEAN RECORDS. In the last fifty years the time of a transatlantic steam voyage has been cut down more than half, the size of the ships has been multiplied by 12, and the carrying capacity by more than 50. In 1840 the Acadia was a crack ocean liner. Her tonnage was 1,150, and her horse-power 425. The tonnage of the Campania is 13,000, and her horse-power 25,000. The Great Eastern, which was built in 1858, was 680 feet long and 83 feet breadth of beam; but her horse-power was only 7,650. The record of a transatlantic voyage from Queenstown to New-York has, since 1866, when the Scotia made the then remarkable time of 8 days, 2 hours, 48 minutes, been brought down to the Lucania's present record, 5 days, 7 hours, 23 minutes. The Baltic was the first to reduce the time of passage below 8 days, making the trip in 7 days, 20 hours, 9 min. utes in 1873. Not until 1882 was the record reduced to less than 7 days, when the Alaska astonished the world by coming across in 6 days, 18 hours, 37 minutes. The following table shows the record-holders for the past 10 years and their fastest trips. These are western records.
