The event date was 22 Dec 1854 (ie date of newspaper) so the best I can find

Dundee, Perth, and Cupar Advertiser December 22, 1854   At Mill St Perth on the 7th inst Mrs John Murdoch of a daughter

Kay

Added -looks like it ties in with this baptism https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X19F-K46   The family were living at 8 Mill St Perth in 1861
