GENTLEMEN :—We take much pleasure in
recommending your Salamander Safes to mer

preserving their books, papers, &c.. from fire, as
the one we purchased from you about seven
months since has preserved our books, papers and

put into it, before the great fire of this •norning,
which destroyed the entire block of buildings cor

safe was in use in our office, on the second floor
of our building, from which place it fell into the
cellar, and remained there until the fire was out.
The safe was then removed and opened in the
presence of at least one thousand persons, who
witnessed the goo I condition of the contents.—
Will you please have the Safe and Locks repair

perfect confidence in its fire proof qualities.

Electro-Magnet Lightning Rods
AFTER many' years' close investigation
and numerous experiments, the Pattentee
sakes pleasure in informing the public that lie
has arrived at the true principles of protecting
families, dwellings and property from the de
structive influence of Lightning. The cal
amities that every City, Town, Village and
Country falls victim to annually, through the
gross negligence of its inhabitants, is beyond
calculation, especially when the remedy is so
easy to obtain--this is found in Armitage's
Patent Magnetic Lightning Rods; and in
this alone. This Rod "has been examined ,by
the most scientific gentlemen in the world—
Professors M'Murtrie, Johnson, Wallor and
many others that have examined them, recom.
mend and speak of them in the highest terms
of approbation, and have pronounced them the
only safe rods'in use in this or any other - coun
try, for the protection of Lives and Property.--
One advantage is to divide and throw back a
part of the electric fluid harmless to the clouds;
in time of a stroke this enables the rod to Con
duct that portion of fluid that belongs to the
earth without the slightest danger of leaving
the conductor. This rod has many other ad
vantages over the old one. Tho only place of
manufacturing is in Vine St., 3 doors aboi
Twelfth, Philadelphia, where all persons me
respectfully invited to call and examine for
themselves. For sale Wholesale and Retail Iv
Satisfactory rscomrnendations can be seen
by calling on the subscriber. All rods wal.
Hartleton, Union Co.; Pa.,
Is Agent for Huntingdon, and adjoining coun
ties, and will furnish the Rods on the swe
manner as the Proprietor. Any 'person desir
ing to be supplied with the Rods can leave thiir
orders with the Editor of the Globe, or with
Graflius Miller, of the Rail Road Hotel.
