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."’
