Important Captures

NEW YORK, May 2 – The gunboat Santiago de Cuba from Port Royal 30th ult. has arrived bringing the prize steamer Isabella formerly Ella Warley captured from Nassau to Chestertown with arms, ammunition, winces, cigars and medicines.

The Santiago chased the Nashville but the latter was too swift for her.

The Santiago also captured a schooner from Chestertown loaded with cotton, also two other schooners with cargoes from Southern ports.

Nothing new at Port Royal.

PHILADELPHIA, May [3] – The steamer Florida captured at St. Andrews Bay. Florida arrived here in charge of prize crew to-day. She has 200 bales of cotton.
