D GILMAN, special agent, :JfiO Penn sylvania avenue, as also by the general agent, cor ner of L and 3d streets, Navy Yard The proofs of Its eftcary are so numerous, so well authenticated, and of stieh peculiar charac ter, that sufferers cannot ressouably hesitate to re ceive the proffered aid. The Peruvian Syrup does not profess to be a cure-all, but its range is extensive, becaise many diseases, apparently unlike, are intimately re lated. and, proceeding from one cause, may be cured by one remedy. The class of diseases for which tbe Syrnp pro vide* a cure, is precisely that which ha* so oftea batfled the highest order of medical skill. The facta are tangible, the witnesses accessible, and tbe safety and eAcacy of the Syrup lneoni/overt ibi*. I have aaslvaed the medical preps rat ion called the Peruvian Syrup, with reference to the number and kind of active substances contained In It. and the durability of tbe compound as a pharmaeeuti eel article. The metallic compounds of arsenic, antimony, mercury and rlnc are not present, aor is it possible to detect in It the slightest Indica tion of any metallic and mineral poison its or ganic constituents do not Include opinin, or any of the drugs yielding poisonous principles. The constituents, when separated, are not even acrid to the taste, it is a preparation scientifically and skilfully compounded, po>se?ilng all the durablU ity of a spirituous tincture, without Its objection able qualities and tbe activity of Its leading con stituent Is preserved through tbe judicious adap tation of Its solvent.

Mist Juliana May. The following comes from a very intelligent gentleman, who i* not only intelligent and able, but also musical, and capable ot proper ly appreciating what he writes of. It will not be long before the American people, who love to patroniie and henor the opera, and its most celebrated and renowned artists, may havo an opportunity of listening to the sweet and melodious voice of the great American cantatrice, Miss Juliana May, who was born and reared in Washington city A few years since. Miss May, who had a lauda ble passion lor music, and whose voice, by her friends, was deemed to be a charming one. went to Italy to perfect herself in her popu lar art, where she remained some two or three years under tho tuition and instruction of the mofct celebrated and accomplished masters of the profession, in that country of music, of sons, of painting, and of sculpture Miss May made her aebvi in opera, at Ve rona, last year, and was eminently suece.viful lint almost instantaneously there sprung up. as if by magic, a species of iealousy and op position to her, on the part of those who man aged and sang at the opera, which proclaimed in unmistakable terms that an American raw t a trice, no matter bow excellent her charac ter, her voice, and her execution, should not be successful, should not triumph in the Old World. This jealousy and opposition ifas partially successful. Miss May afterward" appeared ?..s prima donna in an opera at Milan, but the opposition to her success appeared there also in its full force on the part of those who man aged and controlled the operas. Neither there, nor anywhere else in Italy, nor even ii ?H&ris, Would tho ililtttcutti of Italy and ? ranee allow or permit au American canta trice to earn aDd establish a triumph in the art of music. Miss May a refined American i education, manners, aud purity of character, did not make her congenial to the peculiar notions aud idAs of those setters of fashion ia Europe who manage the operas ever the water. I?ven though tho Americans had Wowed with homage and admiration to the accomplishments in the art of music of those distinguished foreign artists, Jenny Lind Al boni, |Sontag, Parodi, Grisi. Mad^m Bishop. Louisa Pyne, Ac., yet when a brilliant and *n accomplished American prima donna appeared or, through her friends, attempted to appear in opera in Karope, jealousy and opposition must needs rise against her and decree herde , feat If this is to be the rule of reciprocity, the American public will be very apt to retal iate with interest Even tho virtuous aud wonderful Jenny Lind could not be permitte 1 to be heard at the opera in Paris Last year whilst Miss May, with her mother wassojourning in Paris, a great effort was made by many of the two or three thousand Ameri cans who were in Paris at the time, to get the managers and controllers of the opera there to allow Miss May to appear as prima donaa at one of those establishmeats, but ail to no pur pose Near three thousand Americans were ready and anxious to give her a reception worthy of her great talents aud virtues : but they were denied the privilege The Ameri. can cantatrice was too accomplished and to? accomplished and too virtuous to conform to the notions and idea.* of those who b^re most sway iu the management of operas of Paris. So lust year Miss May did not appear before 14 "arisi.iu audience, liut, as it appears a ??hange has been wrought on this suf.jeet'of late, m that great emporium of fashion From tae last arrived steamer, the news comes to us that just as Miss May was preparing to leave for tfiis country, to obey a call to appear in opera in the leading cities of her own coun try. a pressing request has been made to her to remain for a wnile, and appear as prim* ionna in the Italian Opera at l^aris, and that sh? has accepted the offer. That her *uccei? will be brilliant in the higLest degreo. there cannot be a partiole of doubt in the minds of those who have the fortune to be acquainted with tho fair lady.-AW York Express ?

Cold Regions Extending.?It is well known as a matter of history, thai when Greenland was discovered it p-stessed a much warmer climate than It does at present The ice packs have been extending south from tfce polar regions for some centuries, and tin northeast coa*t* of our continent are much colder than they were three centuries ag. The cause of this is not well understood?tho tact only is known It is believed by s..u e persons that there is a great eddy in some parts of tho polar ocean which sometimes changes its direction, and, by drifting largo icebergs from one place to another, chants the climate of those places wheuce they are drifted by the presence of such masses of ice diflusing their low temperature to great dis tances. In the month ol July last, the White Sea was blocked up with huge mountains of ice, aud the commerce of Archangel stopped tometbirg which never happened before. In the Faroe Islands snow fell in the vallevl in the middle of July, the like of which also never happened before If this drift or ice continues regularly for a few seaaons, the coasts of the W hite Sea will become as inhos pitable as those of Greenland now are -Sci entific American.
