The British airship ' R34 ' made the return voyage

from America with entire success, landing at Pulliam in Norfolk last Sunday morning, seventy-five hours after leaving Long Island. Her journey from the American coast :to the Irish coast took only sixty-one hours and a half. She was helped by the winds, and did not encounter any storm. One of her five engines broke down without impeding her flight. General Maitlaud's log of the round voyage has revealed some of the mysteries of the upper air, which airship navigators will be able to study.
