Meteorological records recorded at the Observatory, Hobart Town. Also includes leafing, flowering, and fruiting times of a few standard plants in the Royal Societies gardens for month of February, 1864. Some of the meteorological phonomena this month were adverse to health
and life, but those of the reverse character so much preponderated, that the
mortality is about 25 per cent. less than the average of February for the
previous seven years.
