DEPARTURE OF .TIE EXPLORING EX PEDITION. The Royal Park, Melbourne, presented a scene of unwonted bustle on Monday. Long before noon, hundreds of people flocked thither, and, as the day advanced, the assemblagegradually increased until it nitimbered several thousands. The usually quiet umbrageous retreat was cinsequently all animation. The cause of the gathering was the departure of the exploring expedition, an event which; as might-na turally be eipected, a large portion of the Melbourno publie would not allow to occur without taking the opportunity of wishing the party " God speed" on their way.
