Propoaed Removal of Sugar Shed*. A number of men connected with the city administration, steamship agents, sugar dealers, steamboat men, owners of sttgarshed stock, and representatives of citizens generally, assembled yesterday morning under the shed at the foot of Toulouse street for the purpose of dis cussing the feasibility of making some ar rangement whereby more room may he had on the levee for the accommodation of sugar dealers, and of that numerous and re spectable body known as "The Gimlet Rangers.'' On the day previous a number of the New York steamship agents had called on the Mayor and Administrators, with a re quest to be left in undisturbed possession ot the present steamship landing, between Toulouse street and the Morgan wharf, at the foot of St. Ann street. Accordingly at half-past eleven o'eloek yesterday, the gath ering of the elans commenced. Among the attendants were Administra tors Reinick, Bonzano, and also Mayor Flanders. The citizens generally were represented by Mr. F. C. Zaoharie, who drew a knot of listeners around him. and spoke earnestly in the interest of the community at large. Mr. William Creevy and others repre sented the interests of the New York lines of steamships, and insisted that their ves sels should still continue to load and dis charge at their present place of landing. Mr. Zacharie thought that their landing place should be removed to the Third Dis trict or elsewhere. He insisted that these steamships brought but little trade to this city. They made their purchases else where, even buying their fresh beef, which they preserved on ice, in New York. He thought, for the benefit of the community at large, that the space these ships now occupy should he given up to the sugar interest. One of these ships, he said, now took up as much wharf room as would be necessary for ten steamboats that landed with their bows on. Mr. Creevy took the position that the steamships brought a large amount of com merce to the city, larger than was conceded, and that the best wharfage facilities should be afforded them. The prominent object of complaint seemed to be that there was not loom enough on the levee to meet the views of the gimlet brig ade. Since the erection of the sugar sheds, the dealers in the saccharine had been greatly restricted in their operations. A proposition was freely discussed to buy out and tear down the two large sheds extend ing from St. Louis street, but cold water was thrown on this project by a suggestion that sugar shed stock would take a rise. Mr. Bonzano and Mr. Remick entertained for an hour their two knots of listeners, listening to their various suggestions. They talked very serenely and deported them selves very pleasantly and smilingly, but the Mayor failed to raise a riffle of excite ment in his limited cirele. and so far as this reporter is concerned, he came away from the scene of the consultation not a whit ■wiser than when he went there. Mayor Flanders evidently has coneoeted some deep laid and wise scheme for the settlement of the difficulties, for he kept entirely shady, and failed to make a single suggestion in the presence of his colleagues, or to any one else, so far as heard by this reporter. At the expiration of an hour, all interest in the subject under discussion be gan to flag, and one by one the assemoly melted away. The meeting dispersed with out having formed any definite plan of aetion. and our representative left the scene with a decided consciousness that his stock of useful knowledge had not been much in creased by the occurrences of the hour. t FROM EAST BATON ROUGE. i Election of Delt-nate- to tlie State Con* vention. j We stated, a few days ago, on the author ity of a private dispatch, that Messrs.

On Saturday last our little town was the scene of a petite drama, which was so in tensely interesting as to bring some of the actors to grief while paying their respective parts. The occasion was as follows: It was known that a meeting of the Parish Execu tive Committee was to be held at noon in the Methodist Episcopal Church, for the purpose of electing delegates to the ninth of August Convention. The meeting had been regularly called by its President, Nel son Taylor, aud when the meeting was called to order by him. at noon of the twenty second, thirty-eight members answered to their names. It bad been previously reported that the Customhouse gentlemen and Lieutenant Governor Dunn (your correspondent is ashamed to find Governor Dunn in such company), had sent a man up here to ma nipulate affairs, and also written some let ters for the same purpose. Nothing, how ever, was definitely known of this at first, but early in the meeting the disorganizes commenced their little games. First they introduced a blackboard; next, they wanted a committee ou credentials, and finally some of them went so far as to suggest that no friend of Warmoth should be elected. Your readers can better appreciate the hub bub when this confession was made than I can describe it. But order having been ob tained, the committee on credentials re ported. Thirty-eight members passed. The name of Francis Sternberg being called up by a member, it was proved, first, that he represented a body of men of whom many were professed Democrats; second, that he had never held a meeting of the club that he pretended to represent, and third, that the body of men never had a club, or had professed Republicanism in any way; but that, on the contrary, Sternberg would rather, at present, work for the Democratic party than the Republican. Tlie committee, after carefully consider ing these facts and a strict ballot, dropped F. Sternberg's name from the list of tlie exec utive committee. Upon this being made known, Mr. Grimes, of the State Central Committee, jumped on his feet, and hurled the most direful threats at the parish commit! ee, and asserted that the State Central Committee would refuse to receive any one because a Democratic representative had been expelled. In short, Mr. Grimes, of the State Central Commit tee, told the whole committee that they should look and learn from him how to act, and that, the State Central Committee ex pected him (Mr. Grimes! to do the work for Lafourche parish. The Hou. Grimes, from the State Central Committee, having collapsed, the following names were announced as candidates; R. B. Lane, D. H. Reese, Louis Comeaux, Brooks, Bibolet, Taylor, Murrell and Crozier. Upon everything being declared ready for the ballot. Mr. Reese hopped up on a seat and demanded an opportunity to read a letter from the Lieutenant Governor of Louisiana. Many remarks were passed not at all com plimentary to Mi. Dunn, which your corre spondent was sorry to hear, but the com mittee finally allowed the thing purporting to be a letter from Governor Dunn to be read. As I could not get a copy of the let ter, I may simply state that it contained a harmless tirade against the standard bearer of the Republican party. Governor War moth, aud placed Governor Dunn in an un enviable position among the committee, for the disorganizers had already stated their desire to be classed with the Democrats rather than with Governor Warmoth, and, in short, threatened to go over bodily to the Ku-Klux Democracy rather than be in the Republican party with Governor Warmoth, and Reese harped on the one string: "We don't want any Warmoth men elected here.'' Your correspondent forbears comment upon such a faction: feeling that through your columns you can better expose these demagogues when the time is ready. After some preliminary skirmishing, three tellers having been appointed from outside by tlie committee, the voting was as fol lows: First ballot—Crozier 17, Murrell 14, Tay lor 12, Bibolet 12, Comeaux 6, Brooks 6, Reese 5, Lane 2; total 79. Result, no choice. This was a heavy blow to the disorgan izers, and Reese with his five votes. Lane and Comeaux withdrew. The second ballot stood—Crozier 19, Murrell 16, Bibolet 15, Taylor 18, Brooks 6. Brooks then withdrew, leaving four can didates, and after a most exciting ballot the tellers announced: Crozier 22, Murrell 18, Bibolet 17, Taylor 17; or, in other words, Crozier and Murrell 40 votes, Taylor and Bibolet 34 votes. Upon this announcement, Mr. Brooks moved the election be made unanimous aud Crozier and M irrell declared elected unanimously. This was seconded and duly carried, when the committee adjourned sine die. This virtually ends the family quarrel of the Republican party in Lafourche, and we say this of the powers that be, if they have a fuss among thamselves they can fight it out. Lafourche goes Republican solid, and at present we believe Governor Warmoth can lead the party better than any man in Louisiana. Yours, as ever. HOWARD. The Olivers at Home. We learn that J. C. and Celestin Oliver were released yesterday evening, and are now at home. Sheriff Kline expressed himself rejoiced at receiving the Governor's order of re lease, as there was great danger of a formidable rescue. The people generally in Ascension and in St. James, especially the colored people, believe the Oliver brothers innocent. Their arrest had caused a general sympathy throughout those parishes. Valuable Improved Real Estate at Auction by the Sheriff. —Particular at tention is called to the sale at auction, to be made this day at noon, at the Merchants and Auctioneers' Exchange, Royal street, by the Sheriff of the parish of Orleans, of two lots of ground, with all the buildings and improvements thereon, situated in the Fourth District, on Jackson, between White and Laurent streets. One of said lots forms the corner of White street. For particulars see advertisement. Some author says that one of the usee of adversity ia to bring us out. That'a true— especially at the knees and elbows. GENERAL SHERMAN'S VIEWS. Characteristic Opinions of the Great Sol dier—His Ideas on the Presidency and Other Matters. A correspondent of the New York Con i mereial Advertiser, writing from Saratoga, gives the following report of an interview with General Sherman: This morning I met the General early, and strolled down to Congress Spring, and then around the Park. He was vivacious and sparkling as Hathorn water, and walked and talked like a boy. As George Alfred Townsend said of Miles O'Riley, "there's a splendid boyishness'' always about Sher man. He is always ready with a pun, a sarcastic repartee, or a strong thought—a very David with the tongue and pen too. "Do you remember how I managed those Charleston rebels when they wanted to pray for Jeff' Davis in the churches?' - asksd the General, as we strolled along. "No. How ?" "Why, said I, 'Yes i pray away—he needs it!' and d—n it, if they didn't get mad and go away and pray for Lincoln." "Been killing a good many Injuns out West, general ?" I asked. "No; the papers kill more Injuns than we do. Why. if we killed as many Injuns as the Herald does, we'd be 'short' of Injuns!" "I see Parker has resigned ?" "Yes; we've had so many dishonest In dian commissioners that Congress resolved to stop the frauds, and they corked up the Indian Bureau so tight that poor Parker had nothing to do but now and then sign his name and frank envelopes for the de partment." "They say he is rich ?" "Not a bit of it," said the general, indig nantly, "Parker has never made one cent out of his office. His record is pure as snow." "Your friends were a little disappointed when you refused to have your name used Presidentially," I remarked. "No, not my friends. They want me to stay where I am. General of the army for liters better than President for four years. Grant regrets that he ever left the army now, and so do I, except that he has done a good w T ork as President." "Do you think it policy to elect Grant again ?" "Of course I do. Why not ? He knows the lopes now; he has become acquainted with the duties; acquainted with thousands of public men. and ten thousand good-for nothing White House bummers, who would do nothing but liarrass a new President for the first year. He has just got where he can tell a good man at sight. Humbug men always get the best credentials; every Congressman signs their recommendation at sight, and many of them deceive a new President. These party frauds are now pretty much played out, and Grant is enabled to deal squarely with true men. Experience and acquaintance is the stock in trade of a good President." "Who will win in '72 ?" " There is no question in my mind," said the genera?, enthusiastically. " I'll bet on Grant against the field—two to one." " Who will run against him ?" " There won't anybody run; but, not being a politician, I can't guess for a moment who will be nominated." " Hancock ?" " Well, be may be tempted to run. Han cock, you know, dislikes Grant personally, and it would be an immense triumph lor him to get where he could rank him. Grant never showed any dislike to Hancock. He went more than half-way to conciliate him a year ago; but there is a clique in Wash ington, a social clique, which manipulates Hancock and keeps up the feud. Women have more to do with it than men." "What do you think of the Ku-Klux bill!" "Good bill, sir! It has already stopped a good many outrages. The fact that the President has power to send troops into any State to quell disturbances, in itself, is enough to frighten the disturbers of the public peace." "But John Quincy Adams says the bill is an absolute surrender of the principle of free government—placing in the President's hands the power, through that and the election bill, to raise himself to the em pire." "All stuff! How ridiculous to talk about a man 'raising himself to the empire' in this country ! Such a man. after declaring for the empire, might hold a regiment of sol diers in the White House yard for just one day, and then the people would put him in the Potomac river. Why, they shut up Napoleon at Strasburg, and ducked him in the sea at Boulogne for just such nonsense." "But in '52 he did ride to the top after all." "Yes, but France was not composed of States—sovereign States, as far as each State controlling its own troops—and every Governor, Democratic and Republican, watching jealously his own State militia. We are not France. Let some crazy Pres ident declare himselt emperor, and intrench himself in the White House yard with the winile regular army—about 16,000 fighting men—around him, and how long would it take Governors Hoffman, Jewett. Randolph, Geary, and Claflin, and the rest, to surround and capture the whole concern ? No, sir," said the general, indignantly; " when a President declares imperialism, every gov ernor will have to be in the mess too, and when that shall be the case, the country will be too rotten to be worth preserving." "Adams calls the Ku Klux bill Grant's negro policy," I remarked. "All humbug again. It is simply a law making it possible to arrest and disperse unlawful gangs of rascals, black or white, in any of the Southern States—to imprison them, and try and punish them. Grant don't have any negro, nor German, nor Irish policy. His policy is to protect all citizens, remain at peace, economize and try to pay the debt. All this talk about impe rialism in America is a libel on the good sense of the people, and Adams ought to have too much good sense to talk such fool ishness." We now brought up at Congress Hall, and the general went in to an early break fast. He was surrounded by a charming family of children, and looked the picture of a good, quiet, honest, sensible citizen, as he is. Always radical, but pretty sure to be right, the general is a hater of humbugs— a liater of impossible theories—a hater of long, empty talkers. He puts more sense into one sentence than some men will get into ten. The general's galaxy of children around him were in a roar of laughter during breakfast—the general as funny as the littlest baby among them. Their names are Master G. E.

The Empire Parish Register says of the cane prospects: We have to again report the continued premising condition of the cane of Plaque mines parish. The weather has been warm and showery, and the labor of cultivation has kept step to the growth of the plant. It is certainly a beautiful sight to look upon one of these fields of cane, as the green and luxuriant blades ripple in the sun and rustle to the soft touch of the reveling winds. The same paper says of tho rice crop: This crop is rapidly maturing, and will soon be ready for the sickle. The recent showers have been highly beneficial to the plant, and the prospect now is that there will be an excellent yield. The weather the past two weeks has been all that the sugar and rice planters could wish. The sun has shone with a royal summer warmth and the rains have been constant with their refreshing visits. The Claiborne Advocate is melancholy: The weather is still hot and dry. Vege tation in town is about played but. The crops within a few miles of town are a great deal better than they are reported. The worst looking crops seem to be around Homer, four and five miles from town. We think that Claiborne will make bread, and a tolerable cotton crop. BY TELEGRAPH.

Under the lead of had whites, a rising of the negroes was apprehended, which, without some organization on the part of tne whites, might be disastrous. The organization alluded to was not poli tical, and was never used for political pur poses. The negroes did not essentially sympa thize with the Republican party; they had an equal interest with the whites in good government. The alienation of a part of the people of the South against the government had been increased since the war by the radieal measures, which they regarded as great wrongs, as well as by military arrests with out warrant or charges, and the trial and imprisonment of innocent men.
