The second mark is definitely one of William Gales, the diamond underneath reads 1845 so its probably Gale & Hayden as that is the first year they started their partnership (it is also a date mark so this piece is from 1845). I don't know what the B is for. As for the other picture, it is too small or too blurry but it is probably a retailer mark. It would also be nice if you could show us the whole piece.
