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 April, 1865.
In many respects this April has had anomalous weather, nevertheless the
general result has been favorable to health and life, and more especially so
to infants under live years old, whose deaths were less than one-fifth of the
total at all ages. On the other hand, invalids, and particularly those of advanced
age, have died in unusually large proportions; those at all ages
above 60, constituting rather more than one-third of the total of all ages.
