The success which i!u attended them, as evidenced by ail ex tensive sale, and the univ?rsal spp-ohation of the many who have worn tnem, induced the subscriber to labor diligently in the improvement of tlie qualities U|>oti which he bases their claims to a liberal patronage. Fully warranted by e*i>erietice and the conclusive testimony of his patrons, he repeats his de clarations (notwithstanding the recent " novel improvement" so called) of the two preceding year*, that the Goss.mer Hata arc lighter and mora pleasant th ui any other, are not liable, 1 ke Leghorus, Panamas, tie., to Jose th.-ir shai*'and color by expo sure to rain; and last, not least, they are the cheapest, genteel summer hat, and may be worn two seasons. The style of trim mings ori.uniting with the subscriber,effectually prevents them from beini$ soiled by perspiration or hair oil, extending to the outer surface, as i* commonly the case with hats differently tiimined. This advantage alone entitles them to a preference over all others. john N. genin, 214 Broadway, opposite St. Paul's. N.B.

West Point. [Correspondence of the Herald.] West Point, June 6, 1845. Annual Military Examination?Military Evolu tions?Appearance of Went Point. West Point, ever a beautiful and attractive spot, is more than ever bo at present. To-day began the annual military examinations for 1815, and many are those who have arrived from parts near and remote, to be spectators of the interesting exercises. It must happen but seldom that as great aconcourse oi stran gers assemble here ; indeed, if such were not the case, a little more accommodation would be a desi deratum. Last night?no longer ago?there was an inordinate demand for quarters. Those who were lucky enough to be booked early were free to laugh, and laugh tney did; but the last batch were disposed lo look upon the state of things more gravely. The landlord, whose solicitude to serve all was naturally keen, at last became overpowered with melancholy, and was, lifter laying down his pen in despair, only aroused to fresh eifort by a facetious suggestion of one of the guests, that he should apply to the commissa riat or quarter-master for assistance. Had Rip Van Winkle been there in the same drowsy mood as when he resigned himself to the sale keeping of the Catskills, he could not have been a more eager ap plicant for a dormitory than the gentleman spoken of. At last ingenuity surmounted all difficulty, va rious devices were resorted to; mutual concessions were made, reciprocal overtures were met in a spirit of friendly negociation?the night was passed over without any grave incident; but as to how many slejit in one bed, or in one room, is not yet revealed. It were needless to give a description of this loca lity, and well known retreat; yet 1 cannot abstain from expressing my admiration of it, as one admira nbly adapted for the enjoyment of good air, and all those objects sought for in a country residence. Last night the military band played for an hour on the green adjoining the hotel, and will probably fa vor us nightly with a repetition, which would be desirable, juding from the enlivening and hilarious effects it produced on the crowds who listened to it. As to what is the composition of the hundred dwellers in this populous habitation, I could make no nearer approach to its description than mere conjecture. The usual complement of ladies, comme on dit, are found among tnem. The hedges are charmingly green; the Howers are bloom ing in the parterre in front, and every thing is so laughingly verdant that my regards may have been pre-occupied with them, and so have overlooked the individuals around me. Be that us it may, I would not like to swear how many handsome faces I saw ?perhaps one or two. Of military men we have any number; cocked hats, plumes, epauletts, and brass spurs, arc plenty as strawberries. Of this class there are not a few magnates here now. Among the rest may be mentioned Major General Scott, Briga dier General Brooke, Brigadier General Gibson, Commissary General; Paymaster General Towson, Colonel G. Bomford, Ordnance Bureau; Surgeon General Lawson, and Major Levi Whiting. These constitute the Board of Examiners. In addition to these. General Sandford, General Storms, General Lloyd, the Marquis de Talarue and suite, the Hon. W. L. Marcy and lady, and many others, are here, on account of the military exercises. The Hall of examination was o|>ened this morn ing, and the Board took their seats at 9 o'clock. The Cadets now in the academy, number 204. These are divided into four classes, of which the first, consisting of 41 members, was examined to day, on military and civil engineering. From the readiness and clearness of the" definitions and ma thematical solutions given, it is evident that the system of instruction instituted here is a comprehen sive and sound one. All the young gentlemen ac quitted themselves with credit, and with one excep tion, there did not appear to be any loss for a proper answer. It ia not practicable to report the questions and answers; the first being frequently repeated, and the latter often; indeed, mostly consisting of explanations of diagrams, and mathematical theo rems. Maj. General Scott reviewed the mounted ar tillery this evening consisting of 6 brass field pieces. All the world, as the French say, were out looking on. and it seemed to be much more attrac tive to the lad ies than the dry cross-questioning of the examiners. It is expected the duties of the board will not end here for at least two weeks; and as each day will have its review of Artillery, Caval ry, Infantry, or Engineers, there is likely to be a large expenditure of gunpowder. Baltimore. [Correspondence of the Henld.] Baltimore, June 4, 1845. The Lovely Ladies and like Weather?Jl Hint about their Dresses?Death of Natirtism?The Spring Business? Our l'oung Lawyers?the Seduction Case?.Stamp .Jc<? The Steamhoat Explosion. Summer has fairly let in at lout in a manner quite op pressive to tomt of our more lusty citizens. It has, however, drawn the ladies out in their brilliant and ethe rial attire, whilst the gentlemen have donned their grass coats and straw hats, and the ragged urchins are com mencing to scorn both stockings and shoe leather. The ladies dresses are much admired, being unusually neat and olegant, though some of our most fastidious critics think that they are cut rather lower in the neck than strict modesty would have guided the scissors?in short, they think them rather too " Onderdonkish" to please tiiat portion of their male admirers whose admiration is worth having. However, it is all very pretty to the eye, and if the ladies have no objection, I am sure 1 shall find no fault with them. The spring business in this city has been unusually good, a large number of Philadelphia and New Y ork uoalers having been prevailed on to try the advantages of a market nearer home. That they will ever deal any where else hereafter, is thought to be a settled question, as they have received good bargains, besides saving the expense of further travel. It has tended also to arouse the dormant energies of our merchants, and the prospect of a great improvement in our commercial prosperity is confidently looked lor. Union Hail was a perfect glare of light last night for the reception of the Native American Convention. 1 dropped in about nine o'clock, and the President was in the chair, whilst two members of the Convention occu pied the floor at once, both leaning over the front of his desk, occupied in a low whispering conversation with their presiding officer. The remainder of the members were not there, whilst 1 was the only spectator. It might perhaps have been the Council of Three, who were ruminating over the Anancial condition of tho Asso ciation, but supposing that it was a private assemblage, 1 withdrew without taking a seat. Tho precincts of our Hsdis of Justice, like those of New V ork, are infested with droves of young lawyers, nineteen and three-quarters out of twenty of whom will never make anything over athird rate pettifogger. They stroll in and out of the Court House, with all tho con sequence of a Judge of the Supreme Court, quarrel and dispute most learnedly about the beauty of ladies, the flavor of Baruum's julips, and sometimes descant on the merits of the great legal question, as to whether "Oliver Cromwell was a greater patriot than Aaron Burr," or some other equally important subject relative to the latest lashions for lawyers coats. Although there are some bright stars among them that will prove an orna ment to tne profession, still at the present time they are lost sight of among tho rubbish, which should be re moved by their kind friends, or relatives. Ho to work, gentlemen, you were never intended to make a living by your wits. The last seduction case is still much talked of, and an examination of some sort relating to the matter is expec ted to come off to-morrow afternoon. The friends of the injured party owe it to the community, now that the facts of tho case are so generally known, to bring to punish ment the offender, as a warning to others possossed of the same inclinations and desires. If the particulars of the transaction were made public, it would lie found that the family and friends of the lady used every exertion to revent the parties meeting together, commencing by icking him out of tho house, and using every means that love and paternal regard for her welfare could dic tate. They consequently met clandestinely, he denying to her all accusations against the purity of his intentions, until love gained the mastery over mind, and led the way to the catastrophe which has overwhelmed a worthy and respectable family in sorrow nnd mortification, ana for ever blasted the character of an innocent girl. But if there is no punishment for such systematic villainy in this world, there certainly will be in tho next, and that is some comfort at any rafo. The new stamp law appears, since it went into opera- j tion, to be more popular than it was before. In twenty days it has brought into the treasury nearly $0,000, whilst its operation has been scarcely leltby the commu nity. Tho desire, therefore, to pay tho interest on the State debt has withdrawn a great deal of opposition to it, in view of the handsome revenue which it bids fair to . yield to tho 8tate. Repudiation is rapidly taking its leave ' from the escutcheon of good old Maryland. Tho wreck of tho Paul Jones, with the four dead bo- ! dies in her is still lying ofl North Point. No means have yet been had of ascertaining tho true causo of tho explo sion, as those who might have thrown some light on the subject, have unfortunately fallen victims to the catas trophe. Judge Hoath, in tho District Court yesterday, churged tho Grand Jury to inquire into the causo of the accident, but to arrivo to any result, they will be com pelled to go " down among tne doad men."

Swiss embroideries, Tarlatanne and muslin Scarfs ; shawls of barege printed in bright colors ; stone colored plain aud white plaid bareges, made high in the neck, but open to the waist so as to show the elegant embroi dered chemizettes and guimpet, tho lower part of the sleeve rounded, to display embroidered tarlatanne and muslin sleeves, liright ribbons with a profusion of flowers are worn in fancy straw hats, which are very fashionable ; on some are worn straw, blue and pink fea thers. The fancy straws are universally worn, the dis tinction, difference of appearance in tho shapes from those last year it,they are made so as to show the hair on the back of the head, and ringlets on the neck and side of the hair. Thore was a great display of these articles worn at the Fete Champetre, of the commencement of the Ilosiere at Nanteme, which was attended by all the nobility and fashion of the neighborhood as well as of 1'aris. The modistes are ovorburthened with orders of the latter for hats, as well as the Magazines de Modes,for the former by the monde elegante that intend to intend the ('hantilly races to the Fetes, of which are invited the dittingut uu<l elite of the fashionable world. Important to Naval Officers.?The following changes and modifications in the uniform prescribed for officers In the United States navy, are hereby author ized to take effect on the 1st day of January, 184tt :? Captains, commanders, and lieutenants, only, are to wear epaulets, and they shall wear one on each shoul der, over the shoulder strap; yet never without swords, wiien absent from the ship. The bullions of the epaulet shall be of silver gilt: thosv of captains and commanders to be in two rows, tne outer row to be half an inch in diamenter, and three incheB long, and twenty in number; those of lieutenants three-eighths of an inch in diameter, and three inches long, in two rows, with a proportionate number in the outer row. Straps of all epaulets shall be of navy gold lace, with a worked edge and crescent, according to the pattern. On the strap of each epaulet, a captain commanding a squadron anil entitled to wear a broad pendant, shall wear a plain silver anchor and eagle, two inches long, and above the eagle a silver star, tive eighths of an inch in diameter; other captains the same, excepting the star; commanders the anchor only. Every officer entitled to wear epaulets, shall wear, on each shoulder, above the shoulder seam of full and un dress coats, a strap from three to four inches long, and from five-eighths to three-quarter* of an inch wide, which shall be made at follows :? For captains and commanders, of blue cloth, with gold embroidery on each edge; for lieutenants, of navy gold lace. Captains who are authorized to wear a star on the strap of the epaulet, shall wear an embroidered star in the centre of the shoulder strap; other captains, a plain silver eagle. In summer, or in tropical climates, commissioned offi cers and passed midshipmen may wear dark blue sum mer-cloth frock coats, of the same style and pattern as the frock coats at present allowed, with medium size buttons. Passed midshipmen and midshipmen shall wear round their caps a band of navy gold lace one and a half inch wide, instead of the present anchor and star. In summer or in tropical climates, officers, when in undress and without epaulets, may wear, on ship board, white straw hats; the body of the hat to be six inches in height, and the rim three and a half inches in width. Belts are to be of black glazed leather, one a half inch wide, with tlings of the same leather, three-fourths of an inch wide, with swivels, and a hook in one of the rings to suspend the sword; the mountings must be of yellow gilt. Belts shall be worn under the coat. Swords are always to be worn with uniform, when ab sent from the ship on duty; 01? when on leave on foreign stations. Swords and belts presented to officers for public services, may be worn in full dress instead of the regula tion sword and belt. GEORGE BANCROFT. Naw, June 4, 184a. Second Great Court of 1846.?Our unnoune ment, says the Philadelphia Gazette, of the 5th inst., yesterday, of the presence of another remarkable comet, seen by the Hampton Road Pilot 011 Saturday, and by Captain Silliman and the Moyamensing Watchman 011 Monday, is confirmed. The comet was regularly ob served yesterday at the Washington, and this morning at the High School Observatories. Prof. Hubbard at Washington, reports the nucleus to be as bright as that of a star of the second magnitude. This morning, at the High School, it appeared as bright as Jupiter. The tail was broader and brighter than that of the great comet of 1843, after the first week in March. It was onlv teen in intervals, when the clouds broke away, and the length of the tail, which must have been some ten degrees or more, could not be ascertain ed. It was near the star called/Pertei, and moving ra pidly in the heavens. Tne approximate nlaces of the comet as observed at Washington and Philadelphia, at mean time of the res pective places, were at follows :? ComtCs R. A, Der. .V. Washington, Juno 3, . . . lfth 13m 27s 3h '2.0m 61.66? Philadelphia, " 4, . . .

Synod of the Reformed I)itcii Chtrch.?What a day of dust, and heat, anil excitement. The first day of the session of the Synod of the Reformed Dutch Church, has just closcd. The Synod convened at 2 o'clock, in the 1st Reformed Dutch Church, at the call of Dr. Van Vechten, the for mer President. There was n very large representation present, from every part of tho church. After the roll was made out, the Mouse proceeded to the election of officers, which resulted in the choice of the following gentlemen For President?Rev. Maubick W. Dwiuht, of Brook lyn, N. Y. For Assessor?Rev. James B. Ten Kvck, of Buroa. For Clerks?Rev. S.H.Fisher, ol' New York city, and Rev. Cornelius Van Santvoort, of Saugerties. Rev. Mr. Kennedy, of Albany, and tho Rev. Ransford Wells, formerly of Newark, addressed tho Synod during the hour?-which was a season of deep into rest to the whole Synod. In the evening the synodical sermon was preached by Dr. Van Vechten, the former President, from John 20: 22, "And when he had said this, he breathed on them and suid unto them, Receive ye the Holy tihost." It is impossible for a stinnger to look around him here without l>eing reminded of other years and of other lands. The very name Brunswick, is historic.

Bishop Klict of Pennsylvania.?We learn au thoritively thut Prof. Potter on the 5th trans mitted to the standing committee of Pennsylvania, his acceptance of the Episcopate of that Diocese, to which he had been so unanimously elected. In answer to many inquiries as to the apparent discre pancy between the announcement of this acceptance, and of the fact that during the absence of his brother, Prof Potter is to supply the pulpit of St. Peter's church in this j city, it is proper to explain the proceedings necessary before his consecration can take place, The standing ! committee of Pennsylvania, upon the receipt of the accep- j tance of Prof. P mast transmit an official account of their . proceedings to the standing committees ol each of the 27 Dioceses of the Union. W hen a majority of these com- j mittees have forwarded to Philadelphia their assent to the nomination of the Bishop elect, then the Pennsylva nia committee aro to forward hi* credentials with proof j of the canonical minority assent, to the presiding Bishop. t (Chase, of Illinois,) who is to forward copies to each of tho 24 Bishops ol the Episcopal church in the United State*. As soon as 13, oi a majority of throe, have sig nified their approval, theu the oonsecration may take : place at any tune designated by the presiding Bishep.

Great Firs at Lafayette, Indiana.?We have the painful duty to perform, says the Lafayette Stand ard (extra) of tlu- 27th nit, of recording the most des tructive and devastating fire that has everbeen witnessed in Lafayette.

The lire originated about 12 o'clock last night, in the stables of the Americnn House, the flame* immediately extending to the hotel, and from thence spreading almost over the entire block. There was quite a number of horses in the stables, *i\ of which were burned to death. The principal sufferer* by thiscalamitv are: -Mr. Catherwood, of the American house; Dr. Halliday, drug store; J. B. ( ongle, saddlery; Fry k Jack?on, book andjob printer*; J. 8. Jk. A. Cnsad, hotter*; J. < tnnnold, boot and shoe maker. The buildings destroyed were owned chiefly by the heir* of Col.

But an inconsiderable amount of good* was consumed, though in the confused effort* to protect them from the devouring element, thousands of dollar*' worth were destroyed. There i* little doubt | but that it was tho work of an incendiary. The entire loss is variously estimated at from ten to twenty thousand dollars.

Attempt to Kill.?A man named Joseph Purring ton, a native of Swanaey, hut lately residing at < entral falls, attempted to take the life of his wife on Monday last, nt Olney ville.

As nld metal, however, the coin will be worth several hundred dollars. Judge Vickery met with a serious accident while on his way to Court.
