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 April,1871.- This month though unusually mild as to temperature, and with great aerial movements, was characterised by high atmospheric pressure, wide daily range of temperature, defective rain-fall, &,c. The deaths were much below the average, and with a veiy equable distribution as to age, but a most unparalleled inequality of the sexes, females exceeding males in the proportion of 16 to 12.
