MORE TURNIP JUSTICE.

INNISCARRA, Nov. 5, 1847.– Will you believe me when I have to inform you that a poor woman from the Parish of Inniscarra, who through hunger, happened to pluck up a single turnip in the noon day, from one of the fields of Sir George Colthurst of Ardrum, was summoned to appear before the Bench of Magistrates assembled at the Blarney Petty Sessions on Tuesday last, and fined for such trifling offence in the round sum of 20s. by the worthy magistrates.

Mr. St. John Jeffreys was one of the presiding Magistrates. –Correspondent.
