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 September, 1865. The weather generally this month was favorable to health and life, beneficial to agriculture and horticulture, and agreeable to the feelings; being warmer and less boisterous than usually characterises this vernal month of the southern hemisphere. Nevertheless in some of the atmospheric phenomena, conditions existed for brief periods, which had a lethal effect on individuals enfeebled by sickness or old age. On the average of eight years, September is sixth on the list of the twelve months, in its rate of mortality. Many persons erroneously imagine that it is one of the most fatal to life. The present month's deaths were below the September average numerically.
