New York, May 3 [1862].

The gunboat Santiago De Cuba, from Port Royal 30th, arrived, bringing the prize rebel steamer Isabella, formerly the Ella Worley, from Nassau to Charleston, with arms, ammunition, wines, cigars and medicines.

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

The Santiago also captured a schooner from Charleston with cotton; also 2 other schooners with cargoes from the southern ports.  Nothing new from Port Royal.
