Latest from Europe.

European advices to the evening of the 5th inst.--a day later — have been received in New York:

A dispatch from Paris, dated the 5th inst., in the evening, says: ‘The announcement respecting the victualing of the Florida at Brest in the Moniteur is supposed to be a still more explicit declaration on the part of France that the period of neutrality is fully passed.’

The Paris correspondent of the London Globe, telegraphing on the same day, says of Michael Chevalier's pamphlet: This time the trumpet emits no uncertain sound, but every note rings out the knoll of the North American Union, and the birth of a separate independent government at Richmond.

The London Globe, of the 5th instant, (evening,) in a leader, says: ‘ "As far as it is possible to judge of American affairs at this distance, and with the meagre information at our disposal, it appears that the plans of the Federals can only be defeated by very vigor us operations in Eastern Virginia."’

The London Globe, of the same day, has regretting the scarcity of labor in England for agricultural purposes, and it asserts, in unseemly terms, that "the poor wretches whose corpses are rotting on the banks of the Potomac and the Rappahannock, and their scarcely less wretched compatriots in America, have been missed in England, and there are none to supply their places."

Dispatches from Paris, dated in the evening of the 5th of September, have the following news items on Mexican affairs:

The deputation from Mexico to offer to the Archduke Maximilian the throne of Mexico has arrived in France.

The Pays of that evening believes that the acceptance of the Mexican throne by the Archduke Maximilian no longer admits of doubt. The same journal does not consider it possible to attribute the pamphlet, "France, Mexico, and the Confederate States, " to an official source.

An Imperial decree published to-day appoints the Mexican General Marquez commander of the Legion of Honor.

The Emperor Napoleon has, the Patrie states, accepted the Grand Cross of the restored Mexican order of Notre Dame de Guadalupe.

Some excitement has been created in Paris by Mr. Dayton having telegraphed to all the American Consuls now in Europe to send any American vessel-of-war happening to be in European harbors in the direction of Brest, for the purpose of giving chase to the Florida; and bets have been made in Paris in favor and against the chances of escape of the celebrated rebel privateer.
