FROM NAUVOO.—We have the following from the St. Louis Evening Gazette, but up to the date of that paper we have no intelligence of the result of the threat-ened attack on Nauvoo.
The Osprey came down this morning, but brings no new intelligence of importance. To-day the Warsaw volunteers were to go to Nauvoo, and, agreeably to their resolutions, arrest the destroyers of the Expositor Press. The constable of Warsaw had summoned the entire force of the township to be in readiness to assist the officers who have the writs. A drill was to take place Monday, On Sunday there was a muster of one hundred and fifty men. The force was well armed and equipped. Two pieces of ordinance and an ample supply of small arms were taken to Warsaw on the Die Vernon, Monday evening. There is no intercourse between the belligerents, and a city ordinance at Nauvoo has laid an interdict on all expatriation at the present crisis! LATER.—An extra from the Warsaw Signal of June 17th, has been received, in which we find the following.—
LATEST ORDERS.—The citizens of this county are ordered lo assemble at their various places of ren dezvous, on Wednesday next, by the officer from whom Smith was rescued, and there to receive gene ral orders to co-operate as a posse to aid in arresting Smith.
Citizens of the adjoining State, Territory and coun-ties, who feel interested in bringing to justice the most depraved wretch on earth, will observe that they can join our standard, and act with the posse comitatus without violating any law. We are all prepared in this county to do our duty. If the Governor orders out the militia, there Will be no difficulty—if not, we are de-termined to try the posse comitatu , being assured that the citizens of surrounding counties, and of Missouri and Iowa, will join us. As soon as the day for a ge neral co opperation is set, we will notify by a handbill, all the citizens of the adjacent country.
In addition, we learn that at Warsaw on Sunday, the 16th inst., there was a muster of volunteers and that they turned out one hundred and fifty men, armed and equipped for the war.
The St. Louis New Era of the 17th says—" Great excitement prevails in Hancock, Adams, and the ad-jacent counties of Illinois, and also in the neighboring counties in Iowa and Missouri. The whole country are preparing for action. An immediate collision of the most sanguinary character is anticipated The same spirit seems to prevail that formerly pervaded Jackson county and the Grand river county in Mis- souri. Several thousand persons had intended to go from that portion of Illinois to the Peoria Convention, and steamboats had been chartered for that purpose, but they now say that the danger and excitement at home is so great that they cannot go "
FROM THE MORMONS —An extra from the Warsaw Signal of June 18th, states that the citizens of tha town, Carthage, and Green Plains were rapidly arriv-ing for the coming contest. The Extra adds;
We have assurances that our neighbors in Missouri and Iowa will aid us. In Clark Co , Mo., we under-stand that many are holding themselves in readiness to march as soon as wanted. From Rushville we have just learned by express that three hundred men have enlisted for the struggle. McDonough County is all alive and ready for the word of command. From Keo-saqua, Iowa, we have just received intelligence, by a resident of that place, that the citizens are in arms in our behalf, and only wait our call. From Keokuk and the river towns, we learn that all are arming. Gen. Stapp of his brigade is requested to call out the Militia and hold themselves in readiness.
Joe is evidently much alarmed, but he has gone too far to back out He must toe the mark or run. Com-promise is out of the question. The Delegates sent to the Governor have not yet returned. If they fail to procure his interference, a day will be set forthwith fo a general rally as a posse, to assist the officers of jus-tice. As soon as this is done we will issue a handbill giving notice of the fact. Our friends in surrounding communities who desire to aid us, will please hold themselves in readiness for this general order. When the word is given, everything depends on promptness. Capt. Grover last week obtained from Quincy fifty-nine muskets. Men and arms are promised from St. Louis, and every thing promises prosperity to our en-terprise. To our friends at a distance we say come! We are too weak in this country, without aid to to ef-fect our object. Come! you will be doing your God and your country service, in aiding us to rid earth of a most Heaven-daring wretch.
Six o'clock, P. M. D. W. Matthews who was sent last Sunday to St. Louis, has just returned. He has succeeded in procuring cannon, and has brought up a good supply of ammunition. Mr. Simpson and Mr Thompson have just ret rned from their trip to Mis-souri, and report all right and ready. A gentleman who conversed with Gov. Ford last week, reports that his Excellency said, that he would do all he could in case Joe again defied the laws, to bring him to justice This was before the news of our present difficulties reached them.
We expect a six pounder to morrow night from Quincy.
