[trom a correspondent.] A public meeting was held yesterday (Tuesday,) to tako steps regarding the -ensuing annual races, Mr. James Graham occupied the chair at the request of the meeting. Several resolutions were papsed respecting the objects of the meeting. The time fixed for the races is the latter end of April ; there 'vere eight gentlemen ap pointed as stewards, whose names nnd other particulars will appear in the race programme.
