Melbourne. - The town of Melbourne is now half a mile in length, the houses at intervals extending over the whole of that space, the habitations at a rough guess are three hundred and fifty; the population one thousand , including children not under twelve years of age, and for the protection of its inhabitants and their property, there are, I believe, only four constables.
