European news.

The steamship Hecla, from Queenstown, 17th ult., arrived at New York on the 29th.--The following summary is of the news from the Herald:

‘ Lord Palmerston, during a speech at Guildball, London, stated that France and England were on accord in all questions "of peace or war on the East or on the West."

’ Earl Russell stated in the House of Lords that the blockade maintained by the American fleet was sufficiently efficient to entitle it to be observed. He believed also that there was every desire on the part of the American Government to prevent injustice from being done to neutrals.

The London Times anticipates that the Emperor of France "delivered from the Mexican war," will make his "powerful voice" heard in America in favor of peace.

The official report of the fall of Puebla caused much joy to Napoleon. He forwarded a letter of thanks to Gen. Forey, in which he disclaims the idea of a permanent rule by conquest. The order for reinforcements for the army was countermanded.

The Polish patriots had gained other victories over the Russians in the field. It is said that Napoleon's intentions on the subject of the revolution are pacific towards Europe; but the situation was still very serious.
