Later from Europe.

The steamship Asia, from Liverpool on the 13th, brings two days later news from Europe:

Captain Semmes received the crew of his new Alabama, the Sea King, on board that vessel off Madeira. The men were shipped in Liverpool. On their joining the Sea King, Semmes made an address, explaining the nature of the duties expected from them by the rebel Government. At the conclusion of his remarks, a row ensued on deck, after which thirty-six men out of one hundred refused to go with him, and returned to Liverpool in the Laurel.

The London journals publish the correspondence between the British Consul at Bahia, Brazil, and the Governor of the Province on the Florida case. Influenced by the perusal of the official papers, some of the London journals renew their angry protests against the action of the commander of the Wachusett. Others of these papers express the hope that due reparation will be made by the United States Government.

La France, of Paris, says that Brazil has broken off diplomatic relations with the United States in consequence of the seizure of the Florida; and the Paris Patrie, of the latest date, asserts that England has called on all the other great Powers to protest, collectively, against the seizure.

A London paper confesses that British army officers, when regularly commissioned, have always been received with courtesy in the American camps, North and South.

Earl Russell delivered an address in the University of Aberdeen, in which he expressed his joy at the fact that the negro was forever free in America, no matter how the war may end — in re-union or a "final separation."

Hon. J. C. Scarlett, late British Minister in Athens, has been appointed Ambassador of Queen Victoria to Mexico.

Franz Muller was to be executed on the 14th of November, the Home Secretary having refused to reprieve him.

The Dano German peace treaty was approved by both branches of the Danish Legislature.

The debates on the Franco-Italian Convention, and the question of the removal of the capital, were continued in the Italian Parliament. Deplorable damage had been done by the recent floods around Florence.

Armed insurrectionary demonstrations had again been made in Venetta.

Admiral Sir M. Stopford, Royal Navy, is dead.

The King of Belgium was on a visit to the Emperor Napoleon.

The London discount market was easy, but there was an average demand at the bank at the reduced rate. Consols closed at 91 to 91 1-8 for money on the 12th of November.

The Liverpool cotton market was buoyant on the 12th of November at an advance ranging from one-fourth to one-half of a penny. Breadstuffs were steady. Provisions dull.
