Commercial Wharf - We are happy to state that Mr. Truax, our enterprising fellow townsman, has leased for a term of 10 years, the wharves, warehouses and water lots belonging to the Hon'ble Messrs. Kirby and Macaulay, at the foot of Store Street. A handsome wharf, to be called the Commercial Wharf, is immediately to be erected, - length 158 feet, width 120 feet, with three store houses; - the whole to be finished by the time the navigation opens, and then placed under the superintendence of Mr. Barton Phillips. There will be sufficient water at the extremity of the new wharf for the largest sized steam vessels to lie with perfect ease and safety.
