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 January, 1866.
Nothwithstanding the very dry character of this month,—only January 1841
having a smaller rain-fall of any January in the last twenty-five years—this
phenomenon usually so adverse to health at this season of the year was more
than compensated by other peculiarly favorable meteorological circumstances,
so that the mortuary tables record an amount of deaths very much below the
January average of the previous nine years.
