New York, Dec. 26.

The schooner Prince of Wales, from Charleston, with cotton, arrived on the 7th (since captured;) also, the sloop Noank, with rice; steamer Isabel, on the 8th, with cotton; steamer Gordon, with cotton, and the steamer Gladiator, from Liverpool, with firearms and ammunition. All of which vessels were warmly welcomed. They came in flying the rebel flag. It was rumored that the authorities would not allow the Gladiator to land her firearms.

A full-rigged brig from Liverpool, with a cargo of salt, also arrived. The captain came into Nassau for a pilot to assist him to run the blockade.

The Lady Adger also arrived from Philadelphia.

The schooners Caleb Stet on, Capt. Robin on, and E. W. Perry, Capt. Adams, from Philadelphia, coal loaded, arrived, but would not be allowed to land cargo for war purposes, and they were obliged to lay off the port.

There was also in port barkentine Marianna, Captain Smith, from St. Thomas, for London.
