San Francisco, July 12, 1852

The steamer Independence, with 225 passengers, arrived from San Juan this morning. She brings no later news than that received by the Tennessee.

There has been an active business doing to-day. Considerable movement took place in sugar, which is on the rise, though no change has taken place as yet; 20,000 lbs. Dutch Loaf, fine quality, went out of first hands to-day at 15c. Carolina ARice, 10,000 lb., sold at 16c. Barley, not much doing Chile, 24c. ; California, 3c. Flour is firm at last prices. Pork, Mess, $36; Clear, $40. Hams, 32c. Molasses, 45c. Candles nothing doing. Liquors, if anything better.
