Meteorological records recorded at the Observatory, Hobart Town. Includes the leafing flowering, and fruiting of a few standard plants in the Royal Societys
Gardens daring the month of Jan. 1865.
One thousaud eight hundred and sixty-five has commenced with weather of
an abnormal character, though so favorable to life, that the mortality for
January is considerably less than the average for the previous eight years.
Nevertheless, January 1864 had greatly the superiority in this respect, not
only over all other Januaries, but in comparison with any month of the twelve
in a year of the eight years now tabled. By the seven years' standard January
stands next to February for being the most fatal to life of the months of a year.
