THE GERMAN CHURCH.
Tho settlers in Canterbury bailing from. tho grand old Eafcherland, havo lately been devoting thoir energies to tho wiping, off o£ the debt on fcho Gorman Church, Worcester street. The plan of operations has developed* into a gift auction, which has been fixed to. take placo at Messi'B Matson and Co.'s. rooms on. Saturday, commencing afc 1 o'clock. The members of the Church, wo are glad fco learn, have been mosfc successful in their canvaßS for goods, as. fche largo and exceedingly miscellaneous, aggregation of articles which will be offered to-morrow, will testify. As a large proportion of our German Colonists have taken, to farming, a plentiful supply of cattle, pigs, poultry, goats, cheese, butter, hams, potatoes, onions, grain, and farming produce generally, will be submitted. We are glad to hear thafc fcho leading merchants and trades-, men of the city have also given liberally to. fche auction, and thai quantities of grooories, ■ wines, furniture, <$;c, from thoir stocks, will contribute to rondor tho salo attractive, ta large sections of the community. The pooplo. of Christchurch are indebted to the Geiroans. for the peal of throo dollb, which constitute one of the mosfc pleasant of tho pleasant thing.* ofthe city. The bolls. are, howev©*, a source of considerable expense to a comparatively small body, and, upon this ground alone, it is to he hoped tliat thoro will b-aa good attend* ance at the sale to-morrow,, and thafc the expectations of those who fo^ wgyked hart|_ will he fully realised.
