Under its new proprietor the Woodville Examiner in a leading article promises to turn over a new leaf, and will be bound to no political party. In ceasing to be tho vulgar-toned littlo print that it used to be, both Woodville in particular and journalism in general will be gainers.
Mr J. G. Gilberd wishes us to say that he is no champion of the Salvation Army, but as a member of a Friendly Society he objects to the processions by-law. Mr Gilberd, apparently, does not choose to remember that the by-law does not prohibit processions ; it merely requires the permission of the Council before they can be indulged in. The condition inflicts no hardship on any reasonable body of men, and gives power to the Council to prevent conflicting processions.

The bis-metallic craze is of the samo sort as the Bank of Issue craze. It is a proposal to creato value out of nothing. The bi-metallist proposes to give to a bit of silver stamped in a particular way a value which is not, or at any rate may not be, its real value, just as the paper money man proposes to give a value to a bit of paper marked in a particular way, which would otherwise be of no value whatever. These fictitious values must for ever remain fictitious. If so many ounces of silver are not in reality worth so many ounces of gold, no legislative enactment can make them have this value, except, of course, for the purpose of the payment of debts already incurred at the time of such enactment.— Christchurch Press.

The other starters were Mr Lefevre's colt Consoh'de and Mr Manton's colt Lourdes. St. Mary won by three-quarters of a length.

The Newmarket October Handicap was won by Springfield ; S cottilla, 2 ; Cambusmore, 3. There were eight starters, and Melton was the favorite.
