A Urge audience was present, the house being well filled. The performance concluded much earlier than usual. ■ We express a general ■aying that the play was factory given during the week. Thin is its fhult, and not that of the actors. In fact Oliver X^ist ia one of Dickcus' least pleasant works, jd in the dramatising, the harshness and re niai veness arc retained given on Saturday evening, opinion, doubtloas, iu of the least satis almost alone. There is S lv a ray of light through the gloom of the , from beginning to end, and after Boeing e beholder retains little recollections of any ffaasant feature. The play, however, gives opportunity to Wallack for a fine personation — a wonderful piece of acting. Hie delineation of Fayin is a great dramatic performance,and it ie not strange that he takes pleasure in it purely as a triumph — - „ —...... —m, however, What is there to bo specially commended ? Mrs. " did well ae Nancy Nyken, and Dalton Ailed the part of Biü, with some portion of the he had aoliieved ae Don Jose ,and Roche fort, but, after all. the play itself gives little Dort unity to anybody. Bishop was sick,and BOt play Rumble, but if he had been able to do , the part is unimportant, and its action do little to relieve the general gloom of the play. Ae we stated on Saturday, the engagement of Mr. Wallack and Mrs. Riclungs-Bernard with Hr . Ford, closed oil that dav. They went from Wilmington to their respective homes fora short holiday. It is announced that the Pantomime and Bur leequo Company who will c , under Mr. Ford's management, are to a Opera House, to-day, aud remain a week.

DF.niCATORV KXERCIHE9—HKRMOg niv. Notwithstanding the fact that the dedicatory services of the new West Presbyterian Church, Eighth and Washington streets, have been in progrès« for several dare, the interest continues unabated, and the spaoious audience room of the church was well Ailed, yesterday morning, to listen to the discourse of Rev. James MoCosh, D. D., L. L. D., President of Princeton College. The exercises were opened with a voluntary by the choir and organ, when a divine blessing was invoked upon the new edifice by Rev. Dr. Mo Cosh. The 182nd Psalm was then read by the same gentleman, after which the 97th hymn— " All people that on earth do dwell"—was sung, and the 6th chapter-of Revelations was when Dr. McOosh offered another fervent prayer and Rev. George H. Smyth announced the 84th hymn —"Behold the glories of the Lord." After this was sung. Rev. Dr. McOosh proceeded to dis course from Revelations, 3th chapter and Gth ▼erne—" And I behold, end, lo, in themidbtof the throue end of the four beasts, and in the midHt of the elders, stood a lamb it had been The Doctor first spoke of John's vision while exile in Patinos, and the disclosure thus made of heaven -of tha throne, surrouuded by saints and it to of as so he . innumerable company of the sweet sounds of music and the voice of the Almighty as of many waters which greeted his ears—of the mysterious book, sealed with seven seals— of the celestial city, with its wails of jasper aud its streets of gold—of the image of gentleness and meekness, of weakness and or death—a it had been slain. But these splendors, he said, do not constitute the glory of heaven. They impart its chief radiance, but the *' Lamb ia the light thereof." This vision, he said, was set before mind would be committed sin. How then is to be pacified ? Not simply by repeutauce, for there is uothiug in repentance to make atone ment for past sin. The repentance of Judas,he said, could not have been the means of relieving the Saviour from the hands into which he had betrayod him. Trust and reliance in the mercy of God is necessary. Under tho law all things purified by blood. It ia the the Jewish, Patriarchal aud Christian dispensa tions. It is tiie same God. The first book tells of tiie offering of a lamb in sacrifice ; the laet, a iamb that had been slain. It is through the suffering of that lamb that the shiner may find forgiveness. This vision is also set before of the character of Jesus—of his meekness and gentleness He had ahead to God ; ciliation of God to be pacified . There could be Goa until the conscience had been appeased. There must be a full, free and instant forgive -notbing short of this will allay its tossings. The anger of God is upon moved aud these agitated waves of conscience will be stilled, and the bosom rock itself to sleep. He tben spoke of Christ as the embodiment of sympathy and loveliness,and declared that hearts ; be gained by a lovely and lovling heart, the world to come ae in this. Again this vision is set before that Jesus is the source of joy to the saints in heaven. Ho leads thorn to the fount of waters— He leads them whithersoever he goeth. No dia of heaven is given for two reasons,— because it glories and its toys night us astray so that we should uegleot the duties of Id,and because words were inadequate to the proper conception of it. A again before he luiiil. to re of the method of atonement No to say they had never offended God foolish to remind fitted to win the human heart. of the reconciliation of not speak of tiie recon The conscience must filial duty to y spoken Ho would ; let this be re Well to remind oript tend to lead this 1 must be born become fit for that place, would not be satisfied there. Its glories and enjoyments would be an endless tor ment to him. Whero heaven was, geographically, he know not, but he knew where it was truly and spiritually—with God.

My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not/' Ho dwelt upon the various forms of tronchmeut which Temptation employs, and counseled his hearers strongly that "It is never duty to dog wroug." At the close of his , he added a few words of farewell to his congregation, and to-the other friends not usual ly in attendance, who stated that he would take occasion to bid good bye to all at the evening service, but now spoke a few words thereto, in c some present who might not, for any reason, l>e able to atlond in the evening. At the evening service, one of the largest con gregations ever in Central Churoh, assembled to near Rev. Mr. Shaw's closing sermon, and fare well address. Mr. Shaw preached from Luke. 24th chapter, and the latter clause of the fifth verse, "Why seek ye the living among the dead ?" The sermon was brief, ana one of çon siderable power and interest. After the sermon, Mr. Shaw made a very affecting farowell address to hia congregation, and to his many friends who were present,that He alluded, in a most kindly manner, to bin pro bable successor, urging hia' congregation to him with tbe same open-hearted friend ship that had been accorded him, when he came among them, and be hoped that the love and kindness existing in this congregation toward t«ir pastor might iipvsr grow Tens strong true.

Dr. C. W.

A few days alter her death, a child seven years old, unprotected by vaccina tion, took the diaease, and I concluded to give Dr. Landell's remedy a trial. I commenced the treatment by giving a mild cathartic, aud after gently moved, I dissolved three grains of fresh vacciue orust in three ounces of water and gave 1 according to tbe the bowels draohm at a dose every two hours. I continued this remedy for five days. The eruption made its appearance day, but instead of goiug through the regular stages of maturation and decline, the pocks commenced drying up on the seventh day. The pocks were few iu number and she had toward symptom during the whole couree of her disease. the fourth Hor appetite remained good and she in fined to her bed more than half of the time of her sickness. Had I commenced the treatment forty-eight hours before the child was seized with the erup tive fever, I have no doubt that there would not have been any eruption at all. It is worthy of remark that tiie crust should be fresh and from of a healthy person, aud should be mix vory twenty-four or forty-eight hours at most.
