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 March, 1866.
In the mortality-rate for the twelve months of the year-on the average
of the previous nine years-March stands the third on the list, February and
July both having a higher mean of deaths. After the short but
violent storm of wind and rain on the morning of the 8th the deaths diminished
largely, one third of all the deaths of the month having occurred during the
first week, and principally from the bowel-complaints which had originated
in the previous month.
