Membrr for CHiusxcHuncir.—On Tuesday last, the corps of members of the House of Representatives for the province of Canterbury, was completed by the election of Richard Packer Esq., who now fills the scat vacated by Mr. Sewell, for the town of Christchurch. We cannot look upon the want of excitement at the event as meaning any lack of interest on the part of the public, any more than the absence of nervous agitation on the part of Mr. Packer, himself, proved that lie was careless of the issue, or held hisjjnew position in li^ht. estimation. An anions though noble task is before Mr. Packer, if be aims at supplying the place of Mr. Sewell to Christchurch and New Zealand.
