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 March, 1871. High atmospheric pressure, great daily variations of temperature, cloudy weather with deficiency of sunshine, small rain-fall, and paucity of ozone, have characterised the present month, and told heavily on old and feeble people, more than two-fifths of the mortality having fallen on persons at and above sixty years old.
