The Metairie races.

--Second Day.--There were two races over this course on the 11th inst.--the first a single dash of two miles, and the second for a purse by the Club at one mile heats. In the first race there were six entries, as follows: Tom Reddy, Regret, Once True, an imported Albion filly, and a Chesnut colt, by Lexington. Of these, four came to time — Tom Reddy being withdrawn. For the second race there were but three competitors--Col. Biugaman's bay filly, Melita; Capt. W. J. Minor's Chesnut colt, Ben West; and Duncan Kenner's black colt, Frank Cheatham. In the first race Uncle True was victorious. Time 1:38½ having made the first mile in 1:47. The second was won by Ben in 1:48½.
