Meteorological records recorded at the Observatory, Hobart Town. Also includes leafing, flowering, and fruiting times of a few standard plants in the Royal Societies gardens for the month of February, 1866.
February, though having the smallest number of days of any month in the year, has bad on the average of the previous nine years, the greatest number of deaths. In last year, however, March was higher . Notwithstanding many meteorological conditions in the present month adverse to health and life, others of more auspicious character have so counteracted the injurious effects, that on the whole the mortuary records give a total of deaths below the February average of the previous nine years, and only one more than last year had, though the beat and dryness of the present month have been so unusually in excess.
