Abstract

Meteorological records recorded at the Observatory, Hobart Town including leafing, flowering, and fruiting of a few standard plants,in the Royal Society's Gardens during the month.Also an analysis of the observatory records for November 1864 in conjunction with those of births and deaths-The character of the weather this month was quite abnormal, and from its frequent and extensive fluctuations, was very fatal to diseased persons, and feeble old people. To the young and healthy the variable atmospheric conditions, from being accompanied with a high degree of serial purity, was the reverse of injurious. Nevertheless, the mortality of the month somewhat exceeded the November average of the previous seven years. At all ages beyond five years old, there was an excess of deaths. From birth to five years of age, the deaths were little beyond half the average.
