Meteorological records recorded at the Observatory, Hobart Town. Includesleafing flowering and fruiting of a few standard plants in the Royal Society's Gardens
during the month of January. The meteorology of this month is quite peculiar, and had not some of the
phenomena most adverse to health and life been counteracted by others of
the opposite character, the health of the community would have been
seriously affected, and the death-rate have been much in the excess of the 15
years' mean for January. As it was, the excess of deaths is scarcely appreciable,
being only the fifteenth of one, and no epidemic disease became prevalent.
