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 July 1871.- The weather this month was unusually wet, windy, and warm, with great mutations of atmospheric pressure, and an excessive daily-range of temperature, together with ozone above the average. It is very remarkable that exactly one-half of all the deaths were at and above 60 years of age, while deaths under 20 years old were less than one-fifth of the whole. The total deaths were about 24 per cent, less than the July average for the previous 14 years.
