Later from the North.

We have received, through the Agent of the Press Association, the following summary of news from the Baltimore Gazette of the 18th and 19th inst:

‘ A Chattanooga dispatch, dated Monday, says the Confederate battery on Lookout Mountain had worked vigorously all day, alternately shelling Hooker's camp, Moccasin Point, and the Chattanooga camps. Shells were also occasionally thrown into the town, but the fire had resulted in no casualties. Gen. Sherman has made a junction of his entire corps with Gen. Grant's right.

’ The Washington Star, of the 18th, has information of the advance of Longstreet upon Burnside, and presumes that the latter has withdrawn from London and other exposed points and concentrated at Knoxville. The Star thinks the rebels will find it a difficult job to rid themselves of Burnside.

Gold in New York had advanced to 149 with an upward tendency.

Later from Europe.

Four days later news from Europe has been received by the City of London, which arrived at New York-Monday.

The matter of the seizure of the Alexandria had again been before the English Court of Exchequer off a motion for a new trial. The hearing was postponed until the 5th. The Morning Post thinks from the discussion which took place on the above occasion that the law officers of the crown entertain but feeble hopes of setting aside the verdict already given.

The London Star says that an action for a divorce has been instituted, in which Lord Palmerston, the English Premier, is the co-respondent. The plaintiff is a clergyman named O'Kane, and a photograph of the "fair but frail" one is handed about. It is alleged that the whole affair is a plot to extort money.

The French Chambers were opened on the 5th inst. The Emperor's speech was pacific. He proposes a European Conference in the settlement of the Polish question. He hopes the arrival of Maximilian in Mexico will be advantageous to the country. The financial report will be published shortly, although the expectations are not fully realized.--The revenue has increased, and, without extraordinary resources, have met the expenses of the wars of Cochin China and Mexico. Only passing allusions are made to American affairs.

La France asserts that Maximilian's acceptance of the Mexican crown is no longer doubtful.

In view of the difficulties between Denmark and the German Confederation on the Sahesurg- Holstein question, Austria intends to send a portion of her fleet from the Adriatic to blockade the Danish ports.

The state of affairs in Poland show no change.

The advices from Austria indicate that Maximilian is making preparations for his trip to Mexico.

M. Bismark, the Prussian Prime Minister, has received a letter giving him formal warning of his death by assassination. The letter is signed by the Chief of the Revolutionary Propaganda.

The Bank of England has advanced its rate of discount to six per cent., but the efflux of gold continued. The action of the bank caused a general decline in securities and Consols fell ½ per cent.

Cotton was dull, business being checked by the advance in the bank rate.
