The Race. --There was another large attendance at the Fairfield Course on Saturday, to witness the two mile race between some favorite horses, for a purse of $300. Among the spectators present were Messrs. Breckinridge, Preston, and Marshall, of Kentucky, and other distinguished gentlemen from various parts of the South. The race was won by Doswell's Exchequer in two straight heats. We append a summary: Thomas W. Doswell's ch. h.

s of pottage — when he becomes a slave to a Yankee despot, applies the torch to the dwellings of his own native land, dips his hands in the blood of his own kindred — it is the grossest injustice to call him a Yankee--it is an insult to humanity to call him a man; he is not a man, but a monster. The Yankee illustrates the truth of the Scripture doctrine of the depravity of human nature; but there is no human nature of any kind in the character of the renegade Southron. It is the nature of Margrave, in the "Strange Story;" of a demon, having the outward appearance of a man, but not one characteristic or sympathy of common humanity. Time may efface the remembrance of the unspeakable injuries we have received from Yankee hands; the cities they have laid waste will be rebuilt, and the fields they have devastated grow green again; but all the healing waters of Time can never wash out the crimes of traitors to their native land. They will be execrated during their lives, and their child

Our cavalry horses are superior to any others on this continent, only so far as they have a greater or smaller infusion of good blood. It is greatly to be regretted, even in a national point of view, that for the last twenty years we have paid so little attention to the breeding of thoroughbred stock, and let slip the golden opportunity of filling our country with the sons and daughters of such imported horses as Margrave and Priam, Franby and Chateau Margaud, Zingance and Emancipation, which, judiciously crossed on our own blood stock, would now furnish our army with superior cavalry horses in great abundance, and thus enable us to protect our country most successfully and amply from all Yankee foraging and raids. During the European wars for fifteen or twenty years, previous to the battle of Waterloo, the English cavalry had proven itself so vastly superior to all Continental cavalry, on all occasions
ed off, Orion in the lead. After going half a mile, Oakland quickened his pace, and soon collaring his leader, passed to the front maintaining his position to the end of the heat, which he won handily in 5: 53¾. In the second heat, Orion again led off, Conductor second, and Oakland third. The jockey of Conductor finding that Orion was going for the hear, pulled him to the rear to abide his time, and Oakland taking up the challenge, went up in striking distance, and there remained for two miles and a half, when he answered to the call made on him, gave Orion the go-by, and ran home a winner in 5 : 52½. We append a summary: Post-stake for all ages, three-mile heats, $2,500 entrance, the proprietor to add $2,000. D. McDaniel's b. h. Oakland, four years old, by Revenue, dam by Margrave 1 1 D.
