--On Saturday last, an old citizen of Richmond purchased a turkey weighing nine pounds from a commission merchant on Cary street, which proved, upon examination, to have been stuffed with two pounds of dough.
The price paid for the fowl was high enough, in all conscience, without the vendor's resorting to such a miserable fraud in order to enhance its value.
