Sugar going North.
--It seems that the merchants of Hickman, Kentucky
, who were allowed to lay in large stocks of sugar and molasses while the river was in our possession, have carried their stocks to St. Louis
.--One consignment of three hundred hogsheads of sugar, and a lot of molasses, was sold at auction on the 8th inst., the sugar bringing from eight to nine cents. The Republican
says: ‘"The sugar was new, from Louisiana
plantations, and averaged a fully fair grade.
The molasses was of corresponding quality.
There was a liberal attendance of buyers, and sales were so prompt, and the prices realized so full, that the results may be taken as evidencing a fast reviving spirit of trade in this city."’
