No word concerning the Serenity

CENTRAL WHARF. – The appearance of life and bustle on Central Wharf, is really remarkable. The crowds of men are not equaled in any street in the city. Almost every day a new building is presented to the view, and we have no it doubt that in three months, either side of the wharf will be lined with stores. We counted fourteen steamers at this wharf yesterday morning, to wit: Sea Gull, New Orleans, Confidence, West Point, Miner, H. T. Clay, Hartford, Mariposa, California, Jenny Lind, Union, San Joaquin, Martha Jane, and Fire Fly. The largest class of ships can come up to the wharf at any state of the tide, and find every facility for discharging their cargoes.
