SECRET DISEASES.—GIeets Strictures,
Seminal Weakness. Pain in the Loins, Affections
of the Kidneys, and all those peculiar affections
arising from a secret habit, particularly the youth
of both sexes, which if not cured, produces con
stitutional debility, rendering marriage impossi
ble, and in the end destroys both Mind and Body.
Young Men,
especially, who have become the victims of Sol
itary Vice, that dreadful and destructive habit
which annually sweeps to an untimely grave thou

and brilliant intellect, who might otherwise have
entranced listening senates with the thunders of
eloquence, or waked to ecstacy the living lyre,

physical weakness, should immediately consult

that thousands full victims to this horrid disease

from evil companions, or at school—the effects
tit which are nightly felt, even when asleep, and
if not cured renders marriage impossible, and de

What a pity tbat a young man, the hope of his
country, and the darling of his parents should be
snatched from all prospects and enjoyments of
life by the consequence of deviatingfrom the path
of nature and indulging in a certain secret habit.
Such persons before contemplating Marriage,
should reflect that a sound mind and body are
the most necessary requisites to promote connu
bial happiness, Indeed without these, the jour

mind becomes shadowed with despair, and filled

White Sulphur and Chalybeate Springs,
TENSE Springs are now open for the reception
1. of visitors. They are situated in Cumber
land county, Penn's., 30 miles west of Harris
burg, and are accessible by the Cumberland Val
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 Chalybeate Spring adds greatly to the in
ducements presented tbr the present season. The
accommodations for Bathing in all the usual
modes—water Hot and cold, fresh or mineral.—
Persons visiting us will find a happy retreat and
a pleasant homd. Below you have the analysis
of our Sulphur and Chnlybeate Springs.
SCOTT COYLE, l'roprietor.
The odor of Salphuretted 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 an alkaline reaction. The Cha
lybeate water readily yields a preci pate. 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, Common Salt, and
Carbonate of Magnesia.
Respectfully yours, Jos. C. Boors.
Having examined the elements that enter into
the composition of the White Sulphur and Cha
lybeate Springs, of Doubling Gap, us exhibited
in their analysis by Professor Booth, of the Mint,
a practised and competent chemist, are nuthori
zed to say, that they possess all the sanative pro
perties of similar medicinal waters, in the various
diseases for which their use has been recommend

Electro-Magnet Lightning Rods.
A rrER many years' close investigation end
11. numerous experiments. the Patentee takes
pleasure in informing the public that he has err'.
veil 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 vie,
tam to annually, through the gross negligence of
its inhabitants, is beyond calculation, especially
when the remedy is so My to obtain—this is
found in Annitage , 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, Waller and many others that have ex
amined them, recommend mid 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 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

PuttADA.. Aug. 13, 1847.
I have this day carefully inspeete7iii c ' ondueior
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 hare 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;ntanufaetured 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 he 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 tho se ro d s . 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
and superiority.
Riskng Sun, Yhihid. Ca, April 10, 1832.
Thefollowing 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 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 have 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'tI 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: After a trial of teeny weeks, it
affords me great pleasure to inthrm you 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 are
understood, I am convinced that few persona will

of the protection afforded by your rods. Wishing

Hydro-Electric Voltaic Chains,
ARE tor the first time introduced to the people
of Huntingdon and vicinity, as the most con
-I,enient, efleetual, and strictly scientific mode of
instantly relieving and permanently curing all
Now we know that an announcement similar to
the above meets the eye of threader almost dai
ly, and perhaps this may be classed with many
others. But listen or you do us injustice. It is
claimed that Pulvermacher's Electric Chain, is
the only magnetic romedical agent that is secured
by patent, grunted by this government, on the
ground that it was a strictly useful and scientific
article. The Chains are now on exhibition at
the Crystal Palace, and attract much attention
from the thousands who daily visit it.
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
°matte 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 slectro
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, 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 Cares
chats, of New York; 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 new era in medicine.--
During the last twenty years, it can safely be es
timated that tea 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 suffix, and
sooner will death close the scene.
During the last 2 rears more than one thousand
cases of Prolapses ulteri (telling of the womb)
have been permanently cured in England and
France. Most of those eases 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 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 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 HIMACE W. SMITH. Agent for Hun
tingdon county, who wilt also explain their mode
of use.
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
