The Race, at Fairfield, to-day, between Beauregard, Ninette, and a favorite son of Di Clapperton and Revenue, promises to be one of the most spirited and well- contested that has been witnessed on that time-honored course for many years. Ninette has once conquered both the colts on former occasions, and Beauregard, in turn, has sanded her face and snatched the coveted prize from her grasp.--Who knows but it may now be time for the son of Di to show them both his heels, and thus make it necessary for them to meet again and fight their battles o'er. Our choice for the day would be the filly, because of her speed and endurance; but it not up to the mark, she may fall into second place. Let all who admire the sport be on hand to enjoy it to-day.
