I'm not sure what you're looking for? It is likely a depiction of the same scene, but I'm not familiar with the tale of the Shiraishi, and I didn't see it in a quick Web search, so I can't help with that.

The one you found at the MFA is by Kuniyoshi - this one is by Toyokuni III (signed Ichiyoshisai Toyokuni), and dated by the two nanushi censor seals to 1847 to 1853 (so it can't be Toyokuni I, who died in 1825). If you don't already know the date (your post isn't clear, but you know enough to read the title, so...) this page:

will help you work it out.
