Just at this time there were two other things that turned up that helped th downfall of the packet company. The long talked building of the preseut railroad--the Louisville, St. Louis and Texas Railroad had begun to be built, aud a new boat lire out of Derby, Ind., to Tell City had been es tablished by Capt Williams, and his first bout was considered a juke, but bi smess revived at d the new Morning Stir, a countei pai t of the first Morning Star, and about the only sidewheeler plying the Ohio.
