known that the Arabians attained a height in
the knowledge of medicine which caused the
whole world to wonder and admire. With
them the science of chemistry had its birth,
and it is, therefore, not at all strange that a
people so eminently successful in the healing
art, and so persevering and daring in charac
ter, should by actual and untiring experiment,
discover remedies far surpassing in efficacy all
others, for the cure of those diseases incident
to them from their mode of life. The greater
part of their time being spent in hazardous and
bloody warfisre with the different tribes, they
were subject to the most violent attacks of thee
matism, paralysis, neuralgic pains, and vari

from the rare plants peculiar to this country,
and it was by the use of the articles composing
this great remedy that not only their physinians,
lint even the wild Arabs of the desert were en

Arab steed is world-renotened for his beautiful
symmetry of form, his unsurpassed speed and
agility, and the incredible fatigue he is capa

the time of his birth his limbs are carefully
watched, and upon the first appearance of dis
ease the magic lotion is applied, and such
things as confirmed sweetly, poll-evil, fistula,
ringlmne, scratches, spavin, lameness, etc., etc.,
are unknown. The same result will follow in
all cases where 11. G. Farrell's Genuine Arabi

Electro-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 families,
dwellings and property from the destructive in
fluence of Lightning. The calamities that
every City, Town, Village and Country falls 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 A rinitage's Patent Magnetic
Lightning Rods, and in this alone. This
Rod has been examined by the most scientific
gentlemen in the world—Professors APMurtrie,
Johnson, Wallor and many others that have ex
amined them. recommend and 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. Ono 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 conduct that portion of fluid that belongs to
the earth without the slightest danger of leaving
the conductor. This rod has many other advan
tages over the old one. The only place of man
ufacturing is in
Vine St., 3 doors above Ta;el flh, Philadelphia.
where 411 persons are respectfully invited to call
and examine for themselves. For sale Whole

I hsve this day carefully inspected a conductor
or Lightning Rod, 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 best 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. The electric
shock is received and dispersed 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 of these rods. I
have been acquainted with Mr. Armitage for sev
eral years, and bctiara he commenced the 4natm
facture of these rods I examined the principle on
which they are constructed, and felt 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.

"The bogus rod placed upon our dwelling we
have had tatke n down; and another ereted by Mr.
ARMITAGE, to which we would call the attention
of our farmers and readers generally. It is put
op on true scientific principles, and is a rod that
has been approved by the highest authority, and
will hear the most thorough examination. Those
who have been deveived, 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. Analuraog'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 DEAR SIR: After a trial of many weeks, it
(linda me great pleasure to inform von that I
ant highly delighted with the lightning rod you
pieced upon my house at Bustleton. As far as
my chemical knowledge enables me to perform
en opinion, I 11111 satisfied you have developed
the correct principles in the adaptation of rods to
protect property from destruction by lightning; as
soon us the advantages of your arrangements are
understood, 1 am convinced that few persons 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,
I not vow. truly.
