The St. Louis Republican of the 21st says, there is every prospect of farther difficulties between the Mor-mons and Anti-Mormons in Hancock county. The An-ties are reported to be organizing a large party in the vicinity of Green Plains, about six miles back of War-saw. They have also taken out writs for a number of Mormons who are in and about Nauvoo. The attempt to serve these writs will, we suppose, be the signal for attack. The large Mormon vote cast in Nauvoo at the last election, has convinced the Anti-Mormons that there are more Mormons in and about Nauvoo than was pre-viously represented. These, they will endeavor to drive out of the country, The Mormons, rather the citi-zens of Nauvoo, are anticipating an attack, and are or-ganizing the citizens into armed companies and prepar-ing for resistance. The time in which the Mormons stipulated to leave the State having expired, and there being but few, if any, leaving at this time, the matter will soon be brought to an issue. The political dema-gogue—Mr. Dement, the United States Land Officer at Dixon—who induced the Mormons to take part in the last election, after they had resolved in their Church meeting not to cast another vote in the State, should be held responsible for much that may follow. If they had not voted, the belief would have continued that the greater portion of them were gone, and it would not " have added another evidence of their duplicity and false-hood, that they are ever ready to act at the bidding of interested politicians.
