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.
