The New market Racks

--Fourth Day.--The four-mile day attracted a very large assemblage at the New Market Course, and there being three to run for the $300 purse, considerable interest was manifested among the friends of the several entries. Oysterman, Leisure and Minnie Lehman were the contestants. The two first contested the race beautifully. Three heats were run, Minnie was distanced, and Oysterman won the race in 8:03, 8:36 and 8:33. The mile-heat race, with Hall's brown filley, Hare's Bullion, Beasley's Buck-Eye and Baltzer's Gibbons, resulted in the success of Gibbons in the first heat, Buck-Eye winning the second heat, the time not reported, however, by the judges.
