Details: We regret to have to announce the death of the Rev. Irving Hetherington , which took place at the Manse, Hotham street, East Melbourne, at a quarter-past 9 o'clock on Monday morning. He had been in failing health for a long time past. A few days ago a severe cold settled upon him, and it was soon apparent that he could not rally. On Sunday he passed into a semi-unconscious condition, from which he never recovered, and died at the hour named. In point of ministerial seniority, Mr Hetherington was much the oldest Presbyterian clergyman in this colony, his connexion with the Collin street Church dating from April, 1847. He was the son of a Scottish farmer, and was born at Whaite, in the parish o f Ruthwell, Dumfries shire, on the 23rd July,1809, and was therefore 66 years of age at the time of his death. After his ordination he was employed as a missionary in Edinburgh. In the early part of 1837 he was sent out to Sydney by the Colonial Committee of the Church of Scotland. His first charge in New South Wales was that of Singleton, which included Patrick's Plains. This was a pastorate 100 miles square, and its oversight involved an amount of labour which none but a young man could have accomplished. To ride 50or 60 miles a day in the bush for several consecutive days, carrying provisions and sleeping at times under a gum tree, was no uncommon experience in a country minister's duties at that time. After Mr Hetherington's arrival in Melbourne, to succeed the Rev. James Forbes at the Scots' Church, he took a great interest in the negotiations for the union of the Presbyterian Churches, and worked assiduously for its accomplishment, which he witnessed in April, 1859. From that time he officiated as clerk of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church, with the exception of one year, when the honour of the moderator's chair was conferred upon him. In consequence of Mr Hetheringtons advanced age and feeble health, arrangements were recently made for his retirement from the active charge of the congregation (his status as senior minister to be retained) on the arrival of the Rev. Charles Strong, who is on his way to this colony in the ship Bin Cruachan He died, however, in harness. Mr Hetherington leaves four grown-up children. His wife, it will be remembered, died, suddenly two years ago. His unaffected manners and kindly disposition endeared him to numbers outside of his own denomination, and there are few old colonists whose loss will be so widely mourned. The funeral took place on Thursday afternoon
