oo OF VKOM ASTRONOMER ROYAL. Dear Sir)--im -tfferenoe to the reported interruption tf communication through the Atlantic Telegraph, On Wednesday, Augttt2,at noon, as is shown by ftr photographic records, a magnetic storm com- Th-eed, which tose to great violence in the course of Wednesday night, and was at its height from five a.m. on the morning of Thursday, August 3, to the noon ef Thursday. ItdeOlined slowly to eleven p.m. on Taarsddy, and more rapidly io seven a.m. this morn- ling (Friday), Aagost 4. At present, eleven aun., the storm has geueralfyabated. The magnetic storm has been -one of the most violent—in some respects the most violent-I have ever known. Throughout the storm the spon- taneous -earth currents 'have been very strong, and ehangmg most rapidly. The actions of the earth current galvanometers have in consequence been ao rapid that in 'general they have left no trace on the photographic Sheets. From Wednesday, Angust -2, at noon, to i2 a.m. this morning, Friday, August 4) the reoord tram oar Croydon wire is in consequence-of this rapid motion entirely lost. The record from owr Dartford wire is lost generally, but occasionally some traces are visible. If the magnetic •currents in the Atlantic are at all comparable in violence to these in England it isim. possible t&afc any record can have been made by the Atlantic telegraph though it be in perfect order. Perhaps you will hwa the goodness instantly to communicate or publish this in the quarters in which you think it will be most useful.—I am, dear Six, faith- fully yours, G. B. AIRY.
