Both Mr. Hall's re-election for the Christchurch Country District, and Mr. Fook's election for the Town of Christchurch in the place of Mr. Cass, who resigned his seat a short time since, were unopposed. The candidates for the three extra seats conferred by the Provincial Council Extension Ordinance on the town of Christchurch (Captain Westenra, and Messrs. Barker, and J.
