Reported death of citizen.

--We understand that information was received yesterday, by Mr. James H. Britton, that his son, Frank Britton, who has been living for a year past in the neighborhood of Newport News, pursuing his calling as a butcher, had been shot on Monday evening by a Hessian while he was unarmed, driving home a few cattle to slaughter. If our information is correct, the death of young Britton would be called in ordinary times cowardly murder.
