We have verbal intelligence from Nauvoo a few hours later than that we published yesterday. Some of the Mormons from Carthage had reached Nauvoo, bearing with them the dead bodies of JOE SMITH and HIRAM SMITH.
The Mormon story as to the manner and circum-stances under which their leader met with his death is somewhat different from the one we published from the Quincy Herald. They say that there was no attempt to rescue the prisoners; that, all the guard but ten or a dozen having been dismissed, from fifty to a hundred men, in disguise, suddenly rushed on the jail; that the guard fired on them and wounded three of them; that the men in dis-guise fired into the jail and killed Hiram Smith be-fore the door was opened. Joe Smith had a re-volving pistol, and fired it two or three times without effect, but was himself soon killed by the assailants; Richards, his secretary, was not injur-ed. After the assault, the disguised mob retreated, and it was not even known who they were.
The Mormons at Nauvoo were much exaspera-ted, but expressed a determination to keep the peace, and not resort to arms except in self-defence.
