Some parties, either from ignorance or , froth interested motives, have seen tit to as- sert that laughing gas is dangerous; A very slight acquaintance with the nature of i the article, a very little scientific knowl edge, will show how utterly absurd the statement is. They might with more accu racy charge that the atmosphere webresthe every day was dangerous, for it is composed of precisely the same constituents (nitro gen and oxygen) as is laughing gas; the difference being that the proportion of the component noon which we depend for 'ex istence, oxygen, is greater In the laughing gas than in the atmospheric air. Atmos pheric air consists of four-fifths nitrogen, which, will not sustain life, and one-fifth oxygen, without which we could, not live. Every one acquainted with chemistry knows this is correct, and no one claiming scientific knowledge will dare deny it. It 'doom not require a medical diploma to ena ble one, with these' filets before him, to judge if laughing gas, oomposed of the same components as the atmosphere, and having the vital principal in more "than twice the proportion the atmosphere has, is danger gerotui. So far, from it, it exerts a decidedly beneficial influence upon the system which is felt In the exhilerating effects which fol ' low its use, . and •is only paralleled - bYthe t buoyancy spirits ono enjoys in a high state of hen th. For five y rs past Dr. G. W. Spencer has been administering Laughing Gas to per sons afflicted 'with tooth-ache, but dread ing the pain of having the teeth drawn, and he has yet to meet with the individual' who was not satisfied with the result. . Therefore, if you need , a tooth extracted, go to Dr. Spencer's Dental _Establishment, No. 251 Farm street, the largest and best fitted In the city, and take the Laughing Gas, and have nuTear for the 'result. - The Doctor, besides -being a good dentist, is a thorough gentleman.

The following notice of a cure of deafness I was pnblished during list summer, and since then the gentleman him continued on tirelly well, having called on Dr. Keyser d uring tho present week. It ought to be a i source of gratification to those of our read ers who for a long time have suffered with 1 chronic maladies, 'that there - should be some one whose skill and ability could be depended on. _ - There are hundreds of cases of deafnes.s and partial deafness, most of which would be greatly relieved, and many of them en tirely-cured by appropriate remedies. The ease, immediately under our notice is that of Mr. Jacob Boobyer, of Green Tree, Alle 'gheny county,' who for a great many years has been afflicted with partial deafness, so that he, could not hear the ticking of a watch. The deafness was complete m-one car,in the other, only partial, with a con ,tinual noise like that made by the escaping of steam. Mr. Boobyer placed himself under Dr. Keyser's treatment late in July, and now he is well, and has been so for a month past. The cure seems to be thor ough, and what seems to be the more re markable, is the extreme age of the patient, he being in his seventy-ninth year. Mr. Boobyer is a well known and respectable citizen, and had a son in this city.
