Singular circumstance.-A gentleman on a tour through the county of Kent last week, stopped in his way to London at the village of Sittingbourne where a coach had just arrived in its way to Margate, and a Lady, who was one of the passengers, died suddenly as they were alighting; medical assistance was sent for, and upon sending to the apothecary, they found that the servant of a neighbouring gentleman had that instant arrived for one of the faculty to come to the the relief of his master, who had suddenly dropped down in a fit, and was supposed to be no more.
