GENTLEMEN :—We take much pleasure in

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 morning,
which destroyed the entire block of buildings cor
ner of Chestnut and Fifth streets. The above
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.l condition of the contents.—
Will you please have the Safe and Locks repair..

perfect confidence in its fire proof qualities.

Electro-Magnet Lightning Rods
ik.FTER. many years' close investigation
and numerous experiments, the Pattentee
sakes pleasure in informing the public that he
has arrived at the true principles of protecting
families, dwellings and property frem 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 INl'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 Conn
try, for the protection of Lives and Property.—
One advantage is to divide and throw back u
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. The only place of
manufacturing is in Vine St., 3 doors above
Twelfth, Philadelphia, where all persons ate
respectfully invited to call and examine for
themselves. For sale Wholesale and Retail by
