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 July 1866. The meteorological phenomena of this July have been so nicely balanced in their effects on life, that the deaths were only one below the average of the nine previous Julys. In 1865,—the healthiest July on record, —the mortality was one-third lower; nevertheless, it is remarkable, that the present month had a smaller number of deaths under 45 years of age, than any one of the preceding nine years, the death-rate being raised, altogether, by very infirm and old people. The weather, still, was quite abnormal, as the following analysis will show.
