ley Railroad to Newville; front thence in good
coacheS and over easy roads eight miles to the
springs. Many improvements have been made
since the last year, and the recant discovery of
the Chalyheate Spring adds greatly to the in

ANALYRIS OF TIIF. WHITE SULPHUR AND CIIA.
LT SPEJN as.
The odor of Sulphurched Hydrogen, perceived
at some distance from the Spring, imparts to this
water the peculiar properties of Sulphur Springs.
Besides this ingredient, I find that the water con
tains Carbonate of Soda, and of Magnesia, Glau
ber's Salt, Epsom Salt, and Common Salt, in
gredients which give it an increased value. After
removing the excess of Carbonic Acid which it
contains, it gives on alkaline reaction. The Cha-
Ivbeate water readily yields a precipete, after
ebullition or continued exposure has expelled the
excess of Carbonic Acid. Besides the Bicarbo
nate of Iron, which is its chief characteristic, it
also contains Epsom Salt, COIIIIIIOO Salt, and
Carbonate of Magnesia.

Electro-Magnet Lightning Rods.
AFTER many years' close investigation and
numerous experiments, the Patentee takes
pleasure in informing the public that lie 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 inhabitant., is beyond calculation, especially
when the remedy is so easy to obtain—this is
found in Armitage's Patent Magnetic
Lightning Rods, and in thin alone. This
Rod has been examined by the moat scientific
gentlemen in the world—Professors M'Murtrie,
Johnson, Waller 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. One advantage is to divide and throw
back a part of the electric fluid harmless to the
clouds; in time of u 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 hae many other advan
tages over the old one. The only place of MAW.

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 Rouse,
dloucester, 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 meda
-1 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 dispelled 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 rode. 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 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

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 beer. deceived, as we have been, should
lose no time in having a proper protection against
lightning, substituted. The cost is a mere bag

our houses and barns against this destructive ele

MY DEAR Sin: After a trial of many weeks, it
affords me great pleasure to inform you that I
am highly delighted with the lightning rod you
placed, upon my house at Ilustleton. As the as
my chemical knowledge enables me to perform

the correct principles in the adaptation of rods to
protect property from destruction by lightning; as
soon as the advantages of your arrangements are

To THE INVALIDS OF HUNTINGDOIC
Hydro-Electric Voltaic Chains,
ARE for the first time introduced to the people
ofHuntingdon and vicinity, as the most con
venient, 'pawl!, and strictly scientific mode of
instantly relieving and permanently curing all
Now we know that an announcement similar to
the above meets the eyo of the reader almost dai
ly, and perhaps this may be classed with many
others. Best listen or you do us injustice. It is
claimed that Pulvernacher's Electric Chain, is
the only magnetic remedical agent that is secured
by patent, granted by this government, on the
ground that it was a strictly useful and scientific
article. The Chains aro now on exhibition at
the Crystal Palace, stud attract much attention
from the thousands who daily visit it.
NODE OF' USE.
The manner of using the chains is very simple.
The chain is first moistened with colossus vinegar,
and then one end of the chain is applied to the
part where the pain is located, awl 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 is in 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
satisfaction to the patient as Pulveruidelier'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, Asthma,
Contracted Joints, &e.
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
chan, of New York; are also in daily use in every
Hospital in that city. The chains will last for
rears, are always ready for use, and produce no
injurious results, when used as 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 titmales 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 suffer, and
sooner will death close the scene.
During the last 2 years more than one thousand
CMOS of Prolapsus Uteri (fulling of the womb)
have been pernitmengy cured in England and
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 ladies that have been cured its Paris in 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 for 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
ed 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
they did 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
