Eleciro-Magnet Lightning Rods.
AFTER many years' close investigation and
numerous experiments, the Patentee takes
pleasure in informing the public that he has arri
ved at the true principles of protecting lionilies,
dwellings and property from the destructive in
fluence of lightning. The calamities that
every City, Town, Village and Country fulls vic
tim 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'Afurtrie,
Johnson. Wallor and molly otherg tint hece ex
amined them. recommend and speak of them in
the highest terms of apvrohation, Sind have pro
nounced them the only sale rods in use in this or
any other country, 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 n 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 Ws many other adonis
. tnges over the old one. The only place of man
'tincturing is in
line N., 3 doors above Twelfth, Philadelphia,
where all persons arecespeetfully invited to mill
awl examine for themselves. For sale Whole
sale and Retail, by THOS. ARMITAGE.
Orders promptly attended to. Terms cash.
ruil!.A... Aug. 13, 1847,
T have this day carefully inspected a conductor
or Lightning Hod, with vane and index, erected
lir Mr. Thomas Armitage, on Bellevue House,
Gloucester, and have no hesitation in saying that
it is not only the best that I hare ever seen, but
that it is the only one I bravo 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 Imildings.
I run well satisfied that the Magnetic Lightning
Roil, manuthetured by Mr. Thomas Armitage, of
Philadelphia, is the best that has ever been made.
I have split several years in the study of the laws
of electricity and nwenetism, and hove no hesita
tion in saying that these Rods are constructed
upon the only principle of stifetv. The electric
chock is received and dispersed by the magnet at
the top of the rod, and it would be impossible,
according to the laws of attraction nail repulsion,
for a building to be injured by a stroke of light
ning when preaccted by one of these rods. I
have been nequainted with Mr. Armitage for sev
eral years, end before lie commenced the mann
faeture of these rods I examined the principle on
which they are constructed, and felt convinced
that their adoption would be attended with rum
photo success. The increasing demand for these
rods, and the extensive sales in all parts of the
country, is ample commendation of their utility
TRACY E. WALLER, M. Di
Rising Sun, Philad. ea., April 10, 1852.
The following extract in taken from an editori
al in the Germantown Telegraph, edited by Major
"Tilt; bogus rod placed upon our dwelling we
have had taken down; and another ereted by Mr.
ARMITAGE, to which we would roll the attention
of our farmers and renders generally. It is put
up on true seientilic principles, and is a rod that
hos 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 b 0
