A brave man.--Mr. Ryder, of Dunbarton, N. H., has testimony to the truth of the following account of the murder of his brother-in-law at Genevieve, Mo., some months ago: James R. Cochrane, of New-Boston, N. H., had been in Missouri several years engaged in teaching. He had been in Genevieve nearly a year in the same occupation. One day a rebel by the name of Andrew Burnett met him and asked him to swear allegiance to the confederate government, and on his refusal threatened to shoot him. “Shoot,” says Cochrane, with patriotic determination, “I shall never acknowledge allegiance to that government.” Burnett drew his pistol and killed him on the spot.--Concord Patriot, September 27.
