Surgeons. London, graduate from ono of the
most eminent Colleges of the United States, and
the greater part ofwhosc life has been spent in

bled with ringing in the ears and bend when
asleep, great nervousness, being alarmed at sod- '
den sounds, and bashfulness, with frequent blush
ing attended sometimes with derangement of
mind, were cured immediately.
A CERTAIN DISEASE. -It is a melancholy fact
that thousands fall victims to this horrid disease
owing to the unskilfulness of ignorant pretenders
who by the use of that deadly poison Mercury,
ruin the Constitution, canning the most serious
symptoms of that dreadful disease to make their
appearance, such as affections of the head, nose,
throat, skin, etc., progressing with frightful ra
pidity till death puts a period to their dreadful
suffering, by sending them io that Bourne whence
no traveler returns.
TAKE PARTICULAR Norrea.—Young men who
have injured themselves by a certain practice in
dulged in when alone—a habit frequently learned
from evil companions, or at school—the effects
of which are nightly felt, oven when asleep, and
if not cured renders marriage impossible, and de
stroys both mind and body.
What a pity that 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 at deviating from 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,lndeed without these, the jour
ney through ife becomes a weary pilgrimage,
the prospect hourly darkens to the view; the
mind becomes shadowed with despair, and tilled
with the melancholy reflection, that the happiness
of another becomos'blighted with our own.

selves by private and improper indulgence.

melancholy effects produced by early habits of
youth, viz: Weakness of the Back and Limbs,
Pains in the head, Dimness of Sight, Loss of
Muscular power, Palpitation of the Heart Dys

Digestive Functions, General Debility Symptoms

much to he dreaded; Loss of memory, Confusion

Aversion to Society, Self Distrust, Love of Soli

Tousands of persons of all ages,can now judge
what is the cause of their declining health. Los

THE undersigned, now engaged in putting up
Armitage's Electro Magnetic Lightning
Rods in this and adjoining counties, would res
pectfully call the attention of the intelligent pub
lic to the great superiority of this Patent, at a
season like this, when accidents to property and
life almost daily occur, it is the dictate of human
ity, as well as interest, to make use of the best
means of security in our power, for though the

storm, Lis protection and blessing are always

Money making is the °Het of the day, and it
is with this object that medicines are preparei;
for the cure of diseases to which mankind are
subject. It is the 'erne with the baker and butch

well that there is this stimulus to induce the
thoughtful and skilful to devise and prepare in
convenient form, suitable remedies for the afflic
ted. An individual, under a distressing and tor
turing tit of Chills and Fever, is not in a right
condition to study out the means of relief; and it
is more sensible and natural that lie should look
to others, than to depend upon his own prostrated
energies for the antidote. For an appropriate
and valuable remedy, therefore, it is folly to ob

it. To the invalid the important consideration
is simply this, "Will I be benefited by the pur

when the remedy is no easy to ohtnin—rlilm Is

Roil has been examined by the most scientific
gentlemen in the world—Professors M'Murtrie,

amined them. recommend and speak of them in
the highest terms of approbation, and have pro
nounced them the only sate rods in use in this or
any other country, fur the protection of Lives and
Property. Ono advantage is to divide and throw
hack a part of the electric fluid harmless to the

Philadelphia, is the hest 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 Rmls are constructed
upon the only principle of safety. The electric
shock is received and dispetsed by the magnetat

according to the laws of attraction and repulsion,

ning when protected by one of these rods. I
have been acquainted with Mr. Armitage for sev
eral years, and before he commenced the mann. •
flicture of these rods I examined the principle on
which they are constructed, and felt convinced
that their adoption would be attended with entn
plete success. The increasing demand for these
rods, and the extensive sales in all parts of the
country, is ample commendation of their utility
anti superiority.

Ilsdro-Electric Voltaic Chains,
ARE for the that time introditeed to the people
of Huntingdon and vicinity, as the tuns, ,•on
;Knifing, cijecliati,.and strictly scientific mode nf
I latantly reli6 , ,Met end permanently curing all
Now we know that an announcement similar to
the ahoy() meets the eye of thu reader almost dai
ly, and perhaps this may ho 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 was a strictly useful and scientitio
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 acing the chains is very simple.
The chain in first moistened with common cinvnr,
and then one end of the ehaM is applied to the
part where the pain is located, and the other end
opposite to the tirst. 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 cmistunt current of uninterrupted olectro
magnetism. In the following dioceses, no othei
remedy has over given such complete and pertbet
satisfaction to the patient as Pulvermacher's
Chains: Rheumatism, Painful and moulted Joints,
Pains in the Back, Deafness, Blindness, Paraly
sis, Neuralgia in the Face, Long standing Nor
voile Headache, Palpitation of the Heart, Gener
al Debility, Dyspepsia, Female Diseases,Asthma,
Contracted IMuts,
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 Eleetrie 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 Bnren, Post and Carno
(than, of New York; nre 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 as directed.
The introduction of the Electric Chain into this
country is the dawn of a new era in medicine.—
During the last twbnty years, it can safely be es
timated that ten thousand females have died year
ly from this one disease.
It is welt 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
cases of Pro!uplifts Uteri (falling 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 lathes 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 j ust above the hips, and
the other end upon the abdomen, and allow the
ehain 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 Hon
ting,don county, who will also explain their mode
of use. •
The electric chains can be sent by mail to any
pars of the United States, by addressing (post
paid) any of the agents in the principal cities, or
