One day Later from Europe.
arrival of the Africa.

New York, May 9,
(via Alexandria.)--The steamship Africa, from Liverpool April 27th, has arrived.

The subject of American hostilities was engrossing public attention in England.

The news of the bombardment of Fort Sumter created considerable sensation, and produced a slight depression in English funds.--The London Times considers the result of the contest inexplicable, considering that a barroom difficulty would have occasioned more bloodshed.

The Great Eastern was in the hands of the Sheriff, under an execution. She was, however, advertised to sail June 1st, the company having offered to deposit the amount claimed.

Affairs at Warsaw were unchanged. All the towns in Poland were occupied with military, and many arrests continued to be made. There were reports of an intended demonstration on the 29th of May, the Czar's birth-day.

The insurrectionary movements in the Neapolitan provinces were spreading. Martial law had been proclaimed at Abruzzi and other places.
