Later from Europe.
Arrival of the Europa.
the English press on intervention.

The steamer Europa passed Cape Race, on the 7th inst., with dates from Liverpool to the 28th ult. Her advices are interesting. The following is a summary of them:

The Persia's news caused increased excitement in England and cotton further advanced.

The London Times says that it shows nothing much can be accomplished before the fall, and hopes that means may be devised to end the conflict between the North and South.

The Chambers have adjourned that the Emperor is re-considering the principles of the Mexican expedition, and the embarkation of troops has been provisionally suspended.

The steamship Hausa, which was to have left Southampton on the 25th of June, was compelled to put back to Bremen, owing to an accident to her machinery.

The steamship City of New York, from New York, arrived at Queenstown on the 25th, and reported only one of her boilers working.

The ship Sailor's Home, formerly the Independence, had reached Liverpool from Havana with nearly two thousand three hundred bales of cotton.

France is about to construct reduced models of the Monitor and the Merrimac, in order to test their merits.

Russia has recognized the kingdom of Italy.

General Suders was shot at and slightly wounded at Warsaw. The perpetrators of the act have not been discovered.

The American question.

The London Timescomments on the fearful carnage in America, and says never at any time could the map of Europe show so many blood-stained spots. Whatever may be the result, it is plain the war has now reached a point at which it is a scandal to humanity. It has become a war of extermination; yet submission is as far off as ever. The Times does not believe the cry for more bloodshed represents the minds of the American people.--Enough blood has been spilt and enough damage done. The opportunity must be present or at hand when some potent American voice, prudently calling ‘"peace,"’ may awaken a universal echo.

The Times has another editorial on American financed. It says that they are in a most critical condition, and ought to produce serious alarm, instead of empty boasting and exultation.

The London Post charges the American Government with being all along influenced solely by popular clamor, having never pursued an independent course.

The Morning Herald finds it impossible to account for the inactivity of McClellan. Possibly, it says, after the battle of Fair Cake, and the breaking up of Beauregard's army in the West, he does not me his way clearly, and may not himself outnumbered by the enemy, in a position which in impregnable, and from which the enemy may fall upon his lines and works at pleasures. If so, he is likely to meet with a disaster which may change the whole aspect of the war, for a revenue in McClellan involves the rest of his army and of the hopes of the Federal Government.

A meeting has been held in Lesling relatives to the African slave mens, presided over the land Delegation.
