New Market races.--Fifth day.

--The fall season at New Market closed on Saturday, with two races. The first was a single dash of a mile, $200 entrance, between Mr. Hare's sorrel colt Revenue, Mr. Doswell's Janette, (full sister to Planet,) and Gen. Green's Wharton Green.--An accident marred the enjoyment of the race, the latter horse flying the track and throwing his rider violently to the ground, not, however, seriously injuring him, and resulted in his being distanced in the race. Mr. Hare's colt won the race very prettily over Janette, in one minute and fifty-seven seconds. The second was a match race for $1,000, two mile heats, between Mr. Hare's Bullion and Gen. Green's Day break, by imported Albion. This resulted in Mr. Hare's success, Bullion winning in two heats, in the slow time of 4:23 and 4:37.
