From Havana.

--The British steamer Nelly. Capt. Moore, which left Havana on the 1st instant, has arrived at a Southern port in safety. She has brought a valuable cargo of dry goods, medicines, soap, candles, and numerous articles which will be very useful at the present time. She experienced a heavy blow from the South on the 2d instant, and a severe gale from the Northwest on the 5th instant. Saw no Lincoln cruisers on the passage.

The Yankee war steamer Harris Louis arrived at Havana on Saturday last, and had up steam ready to come out when this steamer left.

The schooners Samuel Adams and Jackson Ward had arrived at Mataggas, and the last had sailed for a Confederate port.

The schooner Abert, formerly pilot-boat Charleston, had left Havana.

Many wild rumors from Yankee sources were circulating in Havana, which stated that Savannah, New Orleans, and other places, had been captured, and these reports had affected the price of cotton.--Charleston Courier. 7th
