A Yankee blue Beard. --A shocking wife murder case has taken place in the village of Dansville, New York. Wells Covert, a man thirty five years of age, administered poison to his third wife, eighteen years of age, during her confinement, with a view of inducing a belief that she died from natural causes. It has since transpired that the former wives of this wretch died under circumstances that leave but little doubt that they were disposed of in the same manner, and that he contemplated still another marriage with a girl, who in due time would probably experience a similar fate if his villainy had not been discovered.
