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 May, 1870.-
Most of the meteorological phenomena of this month deviate from the 25
years adopted standard, and though diseases of the respiratory organs prevailed
extensively, the effect on the mortuary returns was but slight, the total
mortality of the month being somewhat below the average of the previous 13
years, and no May of the previous six years having so small a number of
deaths as the present month.
