Finley Races. The Finley Jockey Club held their third annual meeting on Wednesday last when there was a fair attendance of the public including.a sprinkling of the fair sex. The arrangements for the convenience of patrons were carefully attended to, and with the exception of protests, the meeting passed off very successfully and Mr Canning with his stewards are to be congratulated.
