Captain Gaskill

The Steam-boat Industry, Capt. Gaskill, arrived here on Friday evening last, from Louisville, with freight, and 30 to 40 passengers, (principally emigrants), bound up the river, and will leave with the first rise of water. The steamboat Laurel has gone up White river, with two keelboats in tow, laden with goods for sundry merchants at Batesville, &c. Our last advices from the Waverley, left her, 4 or 5 days ago, lying to near the Dardanelles, waiting for a rise in the river.
