Milcah Steed

MRS. STEED POISONED. -- We understand that a Mrs. Steed, who lived in the family of Mr. Young, a grocery keeper, at Calumet Station, in this county, was taken very suddenly sick, and on Monday died. There being indications of poisoning, a Coroner's inquest was sought to be had, but was delayed for want of any officer who had qualified. It was finally held by David Skinner, Esq., and gave a verdict of death by poison, taken or administered in a manner unknown to the jury. The body was buried yesterday. This Young, with whom the lady lived is said to be the same whose trial is pending in the Circuit Court for stealing railroad tickets; and is also reported that a jealousy had seemed to exist on the part of Mrs. Young, in reference to intimacy between her husband and Mrs. Steed, and some say threats had been made. We give these reports as we heard them, and hope the facts will prove such as to involve no one in guilt.
