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 October 1871.-
The extreme purity of the atmosphere, very great aerial movement, with
strong tension and great prevalence of electricity, were the peculiar
characteristics of this month. Deaths were slightly below the average, and
fell principally upon adults and old people, the deaths under 20 years old
being only about one-fifth of the total at all ages.
