Elecfro-Magnet Lightning Rods.
AFTER many years' close investigation and
numerous experiments, the Patentee takes
pleasure in informing the public that be tins arri
ved nt the true principles of protecting families,
dwellings and property from the destructive in
fluence of Lightning. The calamities that
every City, Town, Village and Country falls vic
tim to nnnually t 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 111 9 11furtrie,
Johnson,•Wallor and many others that have ex
amined them, recommend nod speak of them in
the highest terms of approbation, and have pro
nounced them the only safe rods in use in this or
any other country, for the protection of Lives and
Property. One advantage is to divide and throw
hock a part of the electric fluid harmless to the
clouds; in time of a stroke this enables the rod
to conduct that portion of fluid that belongs to
the earth without the slightest danger of leaving
the conductor. This rod has runny other advan
tages over the old one.. The only place of man
ufacturing is in
Piste St„ 3 doors above Twelfth, Philadelphia,
where all persons are respectfully invited to call
and examine tbr themselves. For sale Whole
sale and Retail, by 'mos. ARMITAGE.
Orders promptly attended to. Terms cash.
PIIILADA.. Aug : 13, 1847.
I have this day carefully impected a conductor
or Lightning (toil. with.vane and index, erected
by Mr. Thomas Armitage, on Bellevue House,
Gloucester, and have no hesitation in saying that
it is not only the hest that I have ever seen, but
that it is the only one I have yet examined that
is constructed on strictly scientific principles. It
is with much pleasure that I recommend this
conductor to the attention of owners of buildings.
I am well satisfied that the Magnetic Lightning
Rod, manufactured by Mr. Thomas Armitage, of
Philadelphia, is the best that has ever been made•
I have spent several years in the study of the laws
of electricity and magnetism, and have no hesita
tion in saying that these Rods are constructed
upon the only principle of safety. Tho electric
shock is received and dispensed by the magnet at
the top of the rod, and it would be impossible,
according to the laws of attraction and repulsion,
for a building to be injured by a stroke of light
ning when protected by one ol these rods. I
have beets acquainted with Mr. Armitage for sev
eral years, and before be commenced the mann-
Meter° of these rods I examined the principle on
which they ace constructed, and ft& convinced
that their adoption would be attended with com
plete success. The increasing demand for these
rods, and the extensive sales in all parts of the
country, is ample commendation of their utility
and superiority,_
Rising Sun, Philnd. en., April 10, 1852.
The &lowing extrret is taken frOm an editori
al in the Germantown Telegraph, edited by Major
“The bogus rod placed upon our dwelling we
have had taken down; and another ereted by Mr.
ARMITAGE, to which we would call the attention
of our farmers and readers generally. It is put
up on true scientific principles, and is a rod that
has been approved by the highest authority, and
will bear the most thorough examination. Those
who hove been deceived, as we have been, should
lose no time in having a proper protection against
lightning, substituted. The cost is a mere bag
atelle when compared with the entire safety of
our houses and barns against this destructive ele
ment. Mr. ARMITAGE'S advertisement will be
found in the columns of this paper; and we feel
as though we were performing an imperious duty
to the community, by thus inviting to it general

MY ncan Stn: After a trial of many weeks, it
afibrds me great pleasure to infortn you that I
Om highly delighted with the lightning rod you
placed upon my house at Bustlctom As far us
my chemical knowledge enables me to perform
an opinion, I am satisfied you have developed
the correct principles in the adaptation of rods to
protect property from destruction by lightning; as
soon as the advantages of your arrangements are
understood, I nm convinced that tow persona will
be found so reckless as to fail to avail themselves
of the protection afforded by your rods. Wishing
you all success in your enterprise,

the bustle and evils of a thoroughfare, or large
town, convenient of access from all sides, with a

for Literary Institutions, which strike the eye of

Hydro-Electric Voltaic Chains,
ARE for the first time introduced to the people
of Iluntingdon end vicinity, as the most eon.-
eiceitud, and strictly scientific mode of
instantly relievina and permanently coring ell
Now we know that an announcement similar to'
the above meets the eye of the reader almost dai
ly, and perhaps this may be classed with many
others. list listen or you do us injustice. It is
claimed that Pulvermacher's Islectrie•Chain, is
the only magnetic remcdical agent that is secured
by patent, granted by this government, on the
ground that it was a strictly useful and scientific
article. The Chains arc now on exhibition at
the Crystal Palace, and attract much attention
front the thousands who daily visit it.
The manner of using the chains is very simple.
The chain is first Inas:cued whit nommen vinegar,
and then ono cud of the chain is applied to the
part where the pain is located, and the other end
opposite to the first. The ends of the chain should
never touch each other. At the moment of ap
plication, the most acute pais is instantly relieved,
wherever is is located, by the passing through the
part a constant current of uninterrupted alectro
magnetism. In the following diseases, no other
remedy has over given such complete and perfect
satisthetion to the patient as Pulvermacher's
Chains: Rheumatism, Painful and swelled Joints,
Pains in the Back, Deafness, Blindness, Paraly
sis, Neuralgia in the Face, Long standing Ner
vous Headache, Palpitation of the Heart, Gener
al Debility, Dyspepsiii, Female Diseases, Asthma,
Contracted Joints, Pc.
will be given to any person who will produce so
many well authenticated certificates of cure from
intelligent patients and scientific physicians, of
the above diseases ' as has been performed by the
use of the Electric Chain during the past year.
It is truly the fact that wherever the electric
chains have been introduced, bottled nostrums and
common lard have greatly diminished in sale.
people having become disgusted with the practice
of using their stomachs for drug shops.
The Electric Chains are highly recommended
by Professors Mott, Van Buren, Post and Carno-
Ann, of New York; are also in daily use in every
Hospital in that city. The chains will last for
years, are Mt.:vs ready for use, and produce no
injurious results, when need as directed.
The introduction of the Electric Chain into this
country is the dawn of a new era in medicine.—
During the last twenty years, it can safely be es
timated that tot (descend females have died year
ly from this one disease,
It is well known to medical men that this corn ,
mon disoase is beyond the reach of medicine, and
that in proportion to the amount of medicine giv
en, the niece the patient is doomed to suffer, and
sooner will death deco the scene.
During the last 2 years more than one thousand
cases of Prolepsas Uteri (falling of the womb)
have been permanently cured in England unit
France. Most of those cases were ladies of high
standing, who had previously tried all other kinds
of treatment with no benefit. Among the distin
guished hates that have been eared in Paris is the
present queen of France. In this country, du
ring the last year, One hundred canes have been
cured in the city of New York, many who have
allowed their names to be published for the bene
fit of those sufferinF, with similar complaints.—
The mode of use is simply to apply one end of a
30 link chain to the spine just above the hips, and
the other end upon the abdomen, and allow the
chain to remain for one hour. This to be repeat
ed forte times during the twenty-four hours.
Tile Electric Chains never fail to relieve the
severe pairs and swelling incident to this disease.
The worst forms of this disease readily yield to a
few applications of a chain, and in no single in
stance have they failed to give instant relief, if
therdid not effect a permanent cure. All persons
who are victims of this usual winter complaint,
are kindly invited to call and obtain a pamphlet
of HORACE W. SMITH. Agent for Hun
tingdon county, who will also explain their mode
of ate.

paid) any of the agents in the principal cities, or
