Van Diemen-'s Land. AIR. GREGORY'S PROTESF. The following Protest, made by the Colonial Treasurer against the circulation of the Mckican dollar at ,the rate of 4s. 4d. involves a question of finance, upon which we-are, by no means, at preseht, prepared to animadvert. Of all subjects which come within the scope of the Journalist, we know of none embracing greater .per. plexity, than what is usually. called the Currency Qnestion-to which Mr. Gre gory's Protest is referable. We shall con sid!er the. nnater with dub deliberation, and report 'accordingly'; and, at present, we have only to observe; that if Mr. Gregory's views are correct (of which we do not much doubt.) the Act, legalizing their cur rency, affords another illustration of the easy, off-hand style of Legislati',n in Van Diemen's Lund ! But, of this more anon; we shall have much to say' upon this sub ie.t in our next, 'Mr. Gregory's reasons for dissen'ting from the passing of the Act intitutledl' An Act to promote, the circu...

English News. [Comn the SrPcmATOR, August 18.] The third reading of Lord Broughanm' Cnnada Indemnity B:ll, in the House of Lords. was signalized by the introduction or a question which had not even been allud d to in the previous debates. The Lord Chief Tustiee pronounced the Dur harn Ordinances " perfectly indefensible" -the "mr,st rash and imprudent proceed ings he had ever heard of," and a '" viola tion of first principles :" but Lord Denman would not agree that men who had viola ted the law should be protected from the consequences, and he would not deprive the wronged of any remrdy which the law entitled them to. If it were made out that the State benefited by the illegal acts for which injured individuals demanded com pensation, let "the State reimburse its officers-not shelter them by bills of in denmnity, which defrauded the injured while they protected the wrongdoer. Lord Den -man merits respect and commendation for 'reminding Parliament of a just principle, which by common...

NEYWS OF THE DAY. A settler named Michael Power lately died at Bat hurst, in consequence of his head, while riding, coming in contact with the branch of a tree. Is this the notorious Michael Power? If it be, he was once one of the greatest pests of society. but after wards proved- one of i's most useful members, though with the ureatest dis credit~to himself. He was the promoter of cattle stealing to an enormous extent. At l:igtbh, the' gaign of which he was the chief, was detected ; and Power, to save his own neck, informed against his old comrades in iniquity, by which some score of them suffered death, or were trans ported. .
