The New WfM Church.
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
