The Rev. William Singleton, one of the oldest Church of England ministers in the colony, died very suddenly yesterday morning, at his residence, Victoria-street, Brighton. He had charge of St. Matthew's Church, Cheltenham, and was dressing preparatory to attending service when he was seized with some affection of the heart, and died in about 20 minutes. Mr. Singleton, who was 69 years of age at the time of his death, came to the colony in the year 1849, and went to Kilmore, of which parish he was the incumbent for nearly 18 years. On leaving Kilmore, he was appointed minister of St. Matthew's, Cheltenham, and had also the charge of the church at East Brighton. He had been in in his usual health up to yesterday, and on Saturday he had walked several miles.
