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 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 inhtibitants, is beyond calculation, especially
when the remedy is so easy to obtain—this is
found in Annitage% Patent Magnetic
Lightning Bode, and in this alone. This
Rod has been examined by the most 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 rode 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

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 House,
Gloucester, and have no hesitation in saying that
it is not only the best that I have over 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 or ammer& buildings.
I am well satisfied that tlenii,j;;;tieKiWning
Rod, manufactured by Mr. Thomas Armitage, of
Philadelphia, is the best that has over been tondo•
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 arc constructed
upon the only principle of safety. The electric
shock is received .d dispensed by the magnet at
the top of the rod, and it would ho 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 those rods. 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
