The success which *ias attended them, as evidenced by ai ex tensive sale, and the universal app-obation of the many who hive worn them, induced the subscriber to labor diligently in the improvement of the qualities upon which he bases their claims to a liberal iwtrooage. Fully warranted by experience and the conclusive testimony of his patron*, he repua:s his de clarations (notwithstanding the recent " novel improvement'" so called) of the two preceding yenrs, that the Gossamer Hats are lighter and more pleasant than any other, are not liable, like foghorns, Panamas, lie., to lose th^ir shape and color by expo sure to niu; and last, not least, they arc the cheapest, genteel summer hat, and may be worn two seasons.

CRI8T1E respectfully informs the American public tint lie has lately arrivea from England. for the purpose of introducing in thin conntry. the novel application of Electro,Galvanism discovered by hit brother, I'rotessor Her man Crist ie of Lendon, in October laat. The discovery- hat received the universal approbation of the medical profession of Great firttaiu, who have pronounced it among the most im firtant of modern scientific inventions. The Patent Galvanic ings have been found to answer all the purposes for which the ordinary galvanic battery, or electric and magnetic ma chines are used, but are without any of the injurious shocks which accompany the application by these instruments, and in many other respects are more safe and certain in accom plishing; the deairea abject. The Galvanic Rings have now been several months before the English public, and the universal reputation they have ac quired are sufficient evidence of their extraordinary imwet in the prevention and cure of the diseases for which they are re commended. They have been used with perfect success in all cases of rheumatism, gout, tic doloreux, sick headache, indiges tion, paralysis, stiff joints, general debility, deficiency of ier vous energy, and all nervous disorders. The galvanic power which they possess is gradual and constant, and the beneficial effects thevjiroduce upon the aystem most be witnessed to be believed. The Galvanic Rings are in every way perfectly harmless, and are sold at prices that are within the reach of all desirous of testing their efficacy. Dr. Oristie warns the Ame rican public from the beginning, to beware of tp n'ons imita tiont The only agency at present in the United States is at 134 FULTON STREET, a few doors from Broadway, in this city, and from the secret process by which the metals are pre pared to be rendered sensitive and efficient, all imitations must he entirely devoid of any galvanic effect CHRISTIE'S MAGNETIC FLUID, used in connection with the Rings to accelerate the galvanic action, is only to be procured at the same place. n?31 lw?tn WILLIAM A.

New Haven* i [<'orreipondence of the Herald.} "City or Elms," May 29, 1HI5. theatrical Exhibitions Forbidden?How Evaded? | Private Theatricals?A Great Desire for Places of \ Amusement*. Never before, I think, have I taken pen or pencil, to give to your paper the shortest communication from this?the "City of Elms." Yet some things have transpired within a few days of so novel a character, that I can do no less than send you a short | account, and let the gude people, an well us all uc- | tors and actresses, know that "a duel's amang them takin notes." You rmist know that it is directly spooned to ull i Connecticut law to have any theatrical exhibitions within the confines of this State, either on land or water. But the theatre going spirit of New Haven has become so aroused, and is now so eager, that it can and will no longer brook this "bluer," and plea sure preventing law. You must also know that there is in this place, " The Young Men's Institute"?an institution esta blished for the praiseworthy object ?f improvement. This Institute has been accustomed for several years to ?ive exhibitions winch ought to be entirely private, and exclusive of both sexes. Such, how ever is their idea of their dramatico-comico talents, that they frequently convert the Exchange Saloon into an illegitimate theatre?issue their hand-bills, and attempt to gather an audience. To collect an audience is the part the most easily accomplished, for as 1 intimated, the people are tiger-fierce for ex hibitions, which oavor, however, little of a regular theatre or circus. Last evening (.Wednesday) they gave one. It was the benefit of no particular individual; but for the benefit of all. At half past 7 o'clock, a respectable number of the theatre going population of the city were assembled in the Exchange. They were im patient lor the curtain to rise, and the boys, who al ways occupy the front seats at all public meetings, here gave signs of their unbounded curiosity to see what there nn?ht be behind that painted mountain, by hissing, whistling, and other sounds, familiar to frequenters of such places* ef amusement ? What do you suppose was the play 7 lie not astonished! 'Twas no other und no less than the "Lady of Lyons," by Sir Edward Lytton Bulwer. Such was the presumption of these youthful aspi rants for theatrical reputation and,honors! Oh! Hulwer! Bulwer! an evil night for your shade was this! Better had it been for you, that you had never written this! piece. Well, the curtain did rise, and upon the astonished audience burst the stage, with all its rich and splendid scenery. There was to be seen snow and grapes, water and animals, stoves and fans, promiscuously daubed about. But what called forth the admiration ot the audience most, was two specimens of nature seated on a damask sofa, which seemed altogether out of place ; and I now believe it was a hair bottom sutlused with blushes. These beings were none other than the representatives of Pauline and her mama. You ran suppose no less than that they were ladies, even though ugly. But they were not?they were men in a would^je woman's shape. But why attempt to describe them ! They surpass description, and none but a house painter could have painted them. But just imagine for the beautiful Pauline?an ugly, un couth, gauky youth, of about five feet eight inches, with hands so large and red, that a pair of white kid gloves would have blushed to cover them, but which were partly covered by brown linen. Her feet! oh Venus ! Oh, Muses! if ye had feet, what a pity! Her dress is easily described. It was glazed pink muslin, with, I should think, a black painted herder round the bottom. Oh, ye gods, what a form! what a neck and shoulders! Header, did'st ever see a female fish-seller 1 And oh, what a voice! Its tones were bewitching?and, oh, the looks she gave him! The character of Claude Mel notte was much better supported; and, indeed, I may say, very veil acted. It was played by Charles Ramie, an old stager, and who, we think, did him self great credit in acting, but much dishonored in being caught in such company. I imagine he thinks it better to be at the head of a mouse than the tail of a lion. At any rate he was at the head of a mouse last evening, and a very small one, too. In a word, the whole affair was despicably mean, and reflects much dishonor upon a city, whose popula tion can pay live hundred dollars for music to be played upon its green twice a week. We admire, however, the spirit that prompts the young men to attempt something of the kind, although tliey have altogether mistaken their abilities. What!?prac tical clerks and shoemakers conduct a theatre 1 What would a Macready. Forrest, or Anderson say to this ! On the whole, there is an allected spirit ol opposition to theatricals in this city, that cannot much longer resist the spirit of the young for inno cent amusements ; and why oppose it 1 The young will have diversion of some sort, and if they cannot get it one way, odiers will be devised. A place ol amusement ought to be founded here; and,judgine from the way exhibitions of all kinds are attended, it would meet with a good and hearty support. I had intended to nave given you some other news about town, but let it be reserved for a future communication. Very truly yours, Axons. Iowa. [Correspondence of the Herald.] Iowa City, May 10,1845. The Legislature of Iowa?(treat IHssatisfartion at the Proposal Limits?Mr. A. C. Dodge?Office Seekers?7V Appointment of Surveyor arui Gov ernor of Winontin?Mr. Pinion's Object?7V Evil of Narrow Boundaries?Dangerous to this State, fyc. The Legislature of Iowa is now in session, and will probably continue in session for some weeks. Theirgessions are limited by Congress to seventy five days j and whether there is much or little to do, they sit out the limited period, and no longer. The narrow limits assigned by Congress to Iowa, as the terms uron which she might be admitted into the Union, nave produced general dissatisfaction, and defeated the excellent constitution formed by a con vention last year. The late delegate, Mr. A. C. Dodge, is much censured for consenting to the boundaries as fixed by Congress. He might have obtained tiie Missouri as the Western Boundary, if he had so chosen. But he was anxious for a seat in the Senate of the United States, and was there fore impatient for the admission of Iowa. And as he had partizans at the north, whom he did not wish to throw into a northern territory, he request ed the Missouri us the Boundary. He will hardly be re-nominated again. But it nominated, will be b?aten. lie has given much offence by encourag ing a host of applicants for the offices now, with few exceptions filled by democrats. They all flock ed to Washington, at the 4th March, but instead of finding a friend to urge their claims in the delegate who invited them to come on, he gave them the cold shoulder. He had his peculiar proteges, whom he intended to recommend from the start?men without merit, except their services to Mr. Dodge. But he desires no appointments made until he se cures his re-election. If none are made till then, the present worthy incumbents, with few except ions, will hold on. The applicants, after besieging Mr. l'olk a month or more, nave returned indignant at the duplicity of the ex-delegate. The appointment of Mr. Jones, Surveyor ef this Territory and Wisconsin, gives satisfaction, as that also of (Jen. H. Dodge, as (iovernor of Wisconsin. I think Iowa will insist on her boundaries as pre scribed by her convention. She does not relish being the first victim to the policy of making small States, In case of a rupture of the Union, she would be at the mercy of Illinois and Mis souri. The argument made by Mr. Vinton as so cogent and lucid in the opinion of the late del egate, when dosely scanned, amounts to nothing. His proiiosition is for the sake of gaining votes in the Senate, to cut and carve up the west into numer ous small States. Now, it is obvious that fifteen large States in the Mississippi Valley, would be vastly more likely to control tne action of the gene ral Government, than thirty small ones. Experience proves that the large States, by facility of combining in the House of Representatives, and by their power over the Presidential election, have more than the proportionate weight which any number of small States with an aggregate of the same number of votes. Suppose Ohio, Indiana and Illinois had been divided into six or nine States, would the great works they have completed and hnve in progress have been ho soon unaertaken! The statesmen of the old confederation Congress justly foresaw the consequences of no cntting up that terri tory. They gave those new States great natural boundaries, the lakes and rivers. Iowa desires that the same great natural boundaries which nature in dicates,the Missouri on the west, the Mississippi on the east, be giveu to her. The plan of two tier of States between the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, is ridiculous; and in mv opinion, the people of Iowa will never submit to having any State inter |x>sed bciween her and the Missouri. The proximi ty of vast hostile tribes ol Indians on our west, is another cogent reason why Iowa should ben large Stale. But enough at present; I will resume tne subject, and tfive you the views of the people of this territory on tnis subject hereafter more at large. VuMm.

The records of the Old World can not furnish an instance so wonderful, and so honorable to human euterprize. Joseph Osgood, says the Button Traveller, who was sent to the House of Correction last week for hav ing stolen two homes and ehaise, one of them belonging to the City Marshal, committed suicide at that institu tion. One of the prisoners, who was sick, was preparing a solution of arsenic in a bottle for medicine, and hap pened to turn away for a moment, when Osgood seized the bottle and swallowed tho whole contents. A iiiuii was found dead on the 29th ult. in Cincin nati. He had been laboring under the effect of mania a pntu. He fancied, while in his delirium, that he wm choking another ; his hand was upon his own throat, ho held on till he ceased 10 breathe, and all efforts to revive him failed. The editor of a paper, animadverting upon the manner in which one of 8hakspeure's plays was lately performed, seriously cautious his readers against sup posing that he has "the least intention of detracting from the well-earned reputation of the great dramatic author."

We learn that some twenty-five companies of infantry have been ordered to, and are now quartered at Kort Jessup, Louisiana. These companies we pre sume are held in readineas for action in case of any dif ficulty with Mexico on our Texan frontier; but it i* the opinion of ma*y with whom we have conversed on the subject, that they are in the very worst possible location for prompt action, a* the Red Kiver ii generally rendered unnavigable from the commencement of summer to winter by low water, which generally prevails during ?hut time. Should the river as usual become low during the early part ol the summer, and the services of these companies bo needed in the neighborhood of the Rio Grande, they would have a march of from three to five hundred miles through an almost uninhabited country across the head waters of all the streams that flow from the highlands of Texas into the Gulf of Mexico. This would be a thirty day's job?a longer period than we ought to suffer the war. in case there be one, to be pro tracted with .Mexico. Fort Jessup is a very good point for cavalry, but it it, in the opinion of those who know the country; the very worst point in the Sonth-west for infantry to be stationed during the summer, with the view of operating either against the Mexicans on the Rio Grande or the rammanches on the west."
