Abstract

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 August, 1865. This month was characterised by mild, dry, sunny, and agreeable weather, with enough of wind movement and electricity to produce a high state of aerial purity, and consequently the community at large enjoyed a better state of health than is usual in August, and the deaths were below the average of the previous eight years. Children, and adults up to 50 years of age, furnished an unusually small proportion of the deaths; more than two-thirds of the total mortality being from 50 to 85 years old.
