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 families,
dwellings and property frum 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 inhabitants, is beyond calculation, especially
when the remedy is so easy to obtain—this Is
found in Armitage.% Patent Magnetic
Lightning Rods, end in this alone. This
Rod has been examined by the most scientific
gentlemen in the world—Frofessors Wltlurtrie,
Johnson, Wullor and many others that bare ex•
mined, them, recommend and speak of them in
the highest terms of approbation, and have pro
nounced them the only safe rods Muse in this or
any other country, for the protection of Lives and
Property. One advantage in to divide and throw
back a part of the electric fluid harmless to the
clouds; it 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
utturing is in

PIIII.ADA.. Aug. 13, 1847.
I have this day carefully inspected a conductor
or Lightning lied, 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 boon 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,
fora 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, .d before he commenced the mann
fiieture of these rods I examined the principle on
which they arc 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.
Rising Sun, 'ldled. ea., April 10, 1852.
The following extract is taken from un editori
al in the Germantown Telegraph, edited by Major
F.* t
"The bogus rod placed upon our dwelling we
have had taken down; and another ereted by Mr.
AnMITAUE, 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. ARMITAUWB advertisement will ho
found in the columns of this paper; and we feel
as though we were performing en imperious duty
to the community, by thus inviting to it general
