On the !>th of July a contract was closed with tiie I'hocnixville liridge Company for building from three to live spans during tiie present season. The contract stipu lated that one span should be comple ted in sixty days, and nnotlicr in each ten days thereafter, if the railroad com pany required them so rapidly. All of the iron for span 0, having first been put together at Plieenixville, was de livered at Perryville on the 17th of An gust. Tiie work of raising was begun on tire 27th of Aug. ,nnd finished on the 5th instant, and on tiie 0th it was satis factorily tested with five locomotives. The other spans are ready for forwar ding, and will be raised necessary preliminary work can be done here. The span is 255 feet long and 35 feet high, and weighs about 200 tons, composed entirely of wrought iron, ex cept the post feet and joint boxes,which weigh in all about ID tons. soon as the PllOFITADI.E IltmiNESB Foil WOMEN. —One of the most profitable, ns well as interesting kinds of business for a woman, is the care of bees, cent agricultural report it is stated that one lady bought four hives fer $1», and in five years she was offered $1,500 for lier stock, and refused it not enough.

Charles Rlx»ert Darwin, the celebrated naturalist, was born at Shrewsbury, Eng land, February 12, 1809. His father Dr. Waring Darwin, F. R. S., and his g undfather, Dr. Erasmus Darwin, F. R. S., who was, in the beginning of the cen tury, noted as a ski'Huil physologist and »''»lactic poet. His chief works were the "Botar cGarden" (in verse),"Zoonamia" and "Phxtolog'.a." Charles Darwin, on tho maternal side, was Josiah Wedgwood, F. R. S., the eele brated manufacturer of pottery. Mr. Darwin obtained his early educotion at.

Mr. Darwin gave his services to this expedition without salary oncon ilition that ho should have the disposal of liis collections, all of which he d».*posi teil in various public institutions. The Beagle sailed from England December 27, 1831, anil returned October 22,1S37. The history and results of the voyage have been published by Mr. Darwin in a series of several volumes. n .1 'l'he grandfather of In 1839, Mr. Darwin married his cousin Emma Wedgwood, and since 18J'J, lias re sided at Down, Beekerlian, Kent, of which county ho is a magistrate.

Jle has enjoyed an immunity from exacting professional care3, being possessed of means ample enough to insure him the leisure and quiet necessary to the successful prose cution of mental labors.
