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.
