Meteorological records recorded at the Observatory, Hobart Town.Includes the leafing,flowering and fruiting of a few standard plants in the Royal Society's Gardens during the month of March, 1865.
This March has been much more favorable to life than last year's, though
singularly enough the total mortality is almost exactly that of the mean of the
previous eight years. The diseases, however, which caused death were principally
those of long standing, rendered fatal by sudden variations of the
temperature and pressure of the atmosphere. The class depending mainly
upon purity of the air, (zymotic) contributed far less than the usual average to
the mortuary records.
