Wonders appenr to be thickening. - The Ã¡tepping oÃ' a new vvorld into the ring seems to have ncceleroted the surprisewheel of creation. Rail-cars going sixty miles an hour - thought flving over our heads upon wires as we walk the strcels- dying people magnetised through the gales oÃ death in trances - roads uuder rivers - the softest tbing propelling he hardest, (cotlon powdcr driving iron shot,) offers to take impregnable castlrs by b.-illoons - and, last, not least important to our immediate uses, a discoverv of a process by whjeh consciousness, that nervous tenant of our house of flcsh, can be made to vacate tho premises during repairs. A pa'ent has been sec'ured by two Boston physiciftns for this kiducement to the soul lo walk abroad ; and they now, in that bright oity, cut off a leg while ihe owner is out, ordraw a tooth, or remove a tumor - the nerves, like goodservants, never suffering without special orders from their mast'T, and carrying no messages to the exaggerating and busy brain in hiÃ¼ absence. On this new discovtry (of a meansof producing " insensibility during surgical and dentaf operations,") Dr. Bigelow, one of the mobt eminent of the medical men of Boston, has lately read a most intereting report beforo n medical society. [Ie states that the profession have bern for some time ferling their way to thi jecret. and that variousgood losser efiects lifttre bern prodaced by the inhalation of ÃflTerent ethers - the difiieuliy of gradu-ing the quantitv, moklng the experiment kngerous. By the new process this difIcuitv isremedied. A small two-necked lass globe contains the prepared vapor, ogether with sponges to prepare the jvaporating surfuce. One nperture ndnits the air to the interior, where, chnrgÃ¯d with vapor, it is drawn through the ccond info the lung. The zs)irej air hus passes through the bottle, but the exiration is divested by a valva as the noutli-piece, and escaplng into the anartnenf, is thus prevented from vitiating the nedicated vapor." Soveral most succes?sive experiments f dentistry and surgical operation are ;iven in the report, the j atienta suffering o pain, bul remembcring the interval as i dream of jHeasure.
