Abstract

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.
