A CERTAIN DIREASE.-ItIS a melancholy filet
that thousands fall victims to this horrid disease

who by t'o use of that deadly poison Mercury,
ruin the Constitution, causing the most serious
rvmptoms of that dreadful disease to make their
appearance, such as affections of the heath, nose,

suffering, by sending them io that Bourne whence

The odor of Sulphuretted 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 Solt, in
gredients which give it an increased value. After
removing the excess of Carbonic Acid which it
contains, it gives an alkaline reaction. The Cho
lyliente water readily yields a precipete, sifter
ebullition or continued exposure has expelled the
excess of Carbonic Acid. Besides the Bicarho

also contains Epsom Salt, Common Salt, and

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
dwellings and property from the destructive in
fluence of Lightning. The calamities that
every City, Town, Village nod 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 Armitage's Patent Magnetic
Lightning nods, and in this alone. This
Rod has been examined by the most scientific
gentlemen in the world—Professors ISPMurtrie,
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 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 on. The only place of man
tyacturing is in
Vine ,St.:3 doors above Twelfth, Philadelphia,

and examine for themselves. For sale Whole

YNILADA.• 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 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 disposed by the magnet at
the top of the rod, and it would he impossible,
actording to the laws of attraction and repulsion,
fora building to be injured by a stroke of light
ning whets protected by one of these rods. I
have been acquainted with Mr. Armitage for sev
eral years, and before be commenced the mane•
litcture 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

AR3fITAGE, to which we would call the attention
of our farmers and renders 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 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

Uydro-Electric Voltaic Chains,
ARE for tho first time introduced to the people
of Huntingdon and vicinity, as the most con
venient, efiectual , and strictly scientific mode of
instantly relievinj and permanently curing all
NERN OUS DISEASES.
Now we know that an announcement similar to
the above meets the eye of the reader almost dal
ly, and perhaps this may be classed with many
others. But listen or you do us injustice. It is
claimed that Pnlvermacher'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 are now on exhibition at
the Crystal Palace, and attract much attention
from the thousands who daily visit it.
MODE OF USE.
The manner of using the chaMs is very 'ample.
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 moat acute pain is instantly relieved,
wherever it is located, by the passing through the
part a constant current of uninterrupted electro
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, Fenutle Diseases, Asthma,
Contracted Joints ' &c.
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 Cam
chat', 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 as irected.
The introduction of the Electric Chain into this
country is the dawn of a new era in medicine.—
During the lust twenty years, it can safely be es-
Duetted that ten thousand females have died yeqr
y 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
souner wilt death close the scene.
During the last 2 years more than one thousand
cases of Prolupsus Uteri (falling of the womb)
have been permanently cured in England and
France. Most of those cases were ladies of high
standing, who had pr e viously tried all other kinds
of treatment with no benefit. Among the distin
guished ladies that h av e been cured in Paris Is the
present Queen of Fra nc e. 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 bone
fit of those suffering with similar complaints.—
The mode of use is simply . to apply ono end of :a
30 link chain to the spine lust above the hips, and
the other end upon the -abdomen, and allow the
chain to remain for one hour. This to be repeat
d 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 exploits their mode
The electric chains can be sent by mail to any
part at the United States, by addressing (post
paid) any of the agents in the principal cities, or
