AFTHR many years' close investigation and
numerous experiments, the Patentee takes
pleasure in informing the public that ho has arri
ved at the trite principles of protecting I — lies,
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 grove 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 tine alone. This
Rod has been examined by the most scientific
gentlemen in the world—Professors WMurtrie,
Johnson,Waller and many others that have ex
amined hem, recommend and speak of them in
the highest terms of approbation, and have pro
nounced them the only safe rods in ace in this or
any other country, for the protection of Lives and
Property. One advantage is to divide and throw
hack 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

PIIILADA.. Aug. 13, 1847.
I have 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 um 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 before he commenced the manu
facture of these rods I examined the principle on
which they are constructed, and felt convinced
that their adoption would be attended with corn
plete success. The increasing demand for these
rods, and the extensive sales in all parts of the
country, is ample commendation of their utility

The following extract 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 creted 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 have been deceived, as we have been, should
lose no time in having a proper protection against
lightning, substituted. The cost is a mero 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 DEAR Sin: A . fter a trial of many weeks, it
affords me great pleasure to inform von that I
am highly delighted with the lightning rod you
placed upon my house at Bustleton. As far as
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 arc
understood, I 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,

Huott J. CAMPBELL, A 8., 1 ,
A. C. FENDALL,
THE Sommer Session of these Institutions
commences on IVednesday, the sth of Moy,
and continues five months. They are situated in
the retired Village of Shirleysburg, in the heart
of one of the most lovely and fertile vallies of the
Ina rural district, among one of the plainest
and simplest people of Pennsylvania, apart from
the bustle and evils of a thoroughfare or largo
town, convenient of access from all sides, with a
community noted for its temperance and morali
ty, and possessing a healthy and unusually beau
tiful situation, this Village presents advantages
for Literary Institutions, which strike the eye of
every visitor. Each ono possesses new and com
modious buildings, and a full corps of teachers.—
They are under entirely separate governmentand
instruction, being situated about a quarter of a
mile apart, and having nothing in common ex
cept flint the use of the Academy Apparatus is
given to the Seminary.
The course of instruction is thorough and ex
-1 leonine, embracing the branches usually taught
in such Institutions. These Schools offer two
principal inducements; first, the most extensive
and complete Philosophical and Chemical Appar
atus in this section of the State, to which Profes
sor FENDALL has made the valuable addition of
his choice collection of Astronomical and Mathe
matical Instruments, including a fine Astronomi
cal Telescope; second, the cheapness of the terms.
Wishing to render their Institutions, as far as
they can,accessibletoall,the Principals have redu •
end the price of boarding to the lowest possible
sum. The regular expenses at the Female Sent
iency, excluding the ornamental branches, are
$50,00 per session, while at other similar Institu
tions the prices vary from $OO,OO to $OO,OO per
session. In the Academy, the whole expense of
tuition, boarding, washing, filch. light and room
rent, will vary from 545,00 to $OO,OO per session.
The whole number of pupils at both schools, for
the past year, was upwards of 100. Special class
es formed for those wishing to qualify themselves
A Fancy Department will be added to the Sem
inary, in which a course oflessons of 4 to 6 weeks
will be given in Gilding and Bronzing, on wood
and Stone, Embroidery on Satin, Crape, Lace,
Muslin, et cetera. Young ladies that wish it,
can receive instruction in this department alone,
which will only require their attendance at the
Seminary for the time of the coarse. Terms $3,00.
Tuition payable in Advance. No pupils admit
ted for less then half a session. No deduction
for absence, except in cases of protracted sick
ness. For circulars and further information ad

• Hydro-Electric Voltaic Chains,
ARE for the first time introduced to the people
of Huntingdon and vicinity, as the most con
venient, efiectuai, and strictly scientific mode of
instantly relieving .d permanently curing all
Now we know that nn announcement similar to
the above meets the eye of the render almost dai
ly, and perhaps this may he classed with many
others. But listen or you do us injustice. It is
claimed that Pulvermacher's Electric Chain, is
the only magnetic remedical agent that is secured
by patent, granted by this government, on the
ground that it,. a strictly useful and scientific
article. The Chains are now on exhibition at
the Crystal Palace, and attract muelt attention
from the thousands who daily visit it.
MODE OF USE.
The manner of using the chains is very simple.
The chain is first moistened with common vinegar,
and then one end 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 pain is instantly relieved,
wherever it is located, by the passing through the
part a constant current of uninterrupted aleetro
magnetism. In the following diseases, no other
remedy has ever given such complete and perfect
satisfaction 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, Dyspepsia, Female Diseases, Astlaua,
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 disputed with the practite
of using their stomachs for drug shops.
The Electric Chains are highly recommended
by Professors Mott, Van Bureu, Post and Carno
chan, of New Yorki are also in daily use in every
Hospital in that city. The chains will last for
years, are always ready for use, and produce no
injurious results, when used us directed.
The introduction of the Electric Chain into this
country is the dawn of a now era in medicine.—
During the last twenty years, it can safely be es
timated that ten thousand females have died year
ly from this one disease,
It is Well known to medical men that this com
mon disease is beyond the reach of medicine, and
that in proportion to the amount of medicine giv
en, the more the patient is doomed to sutler, and
sooner will death close the scone.
During the last 2 years more than one thousand
cases of Prolapsus Uteri (falling of the womb)
have been permanently cured in England and
France. Most of those cases were ladies of high
standing, who had previously tried all otherkinds
of treatment with co benefit. Among the distin
guished ladles that have been cured in Paris is the
present Queen of France. In this country, du
ring the last year, one hundred cases have been
cured in the city of New York, many who have
allowed their names to be published fbr the bene
fit of those suffering 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
four times during the twenty-four hours.
The Electric Chains never fail to relieve the
severe pains 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
theyjlid not effect a permanent cure. All persons
who are victims of this usual winter complaint,
tire kindly invited to call and obtain a pamphlet
of HORACE W. SMITH, Agent far Hun
tingdon county, who will also explain their mode
The electric chains can be sent by mail to any
part of the United States, by addressing (post
paid) any of the agents in the principal cities, or
