FROM NAUVOO.—An extra from the office of the Hancock Eagle furnishes further particu-lars of the state of affairs among the Mormons, which do not seem to be the most agreeable or peaceable :
11 o'clock, Sunday Night.
"A gentleman just from Carthage brings us the intelligence that the anti-Nauvoo forces reached there in great confusion, having heard that the Sheriff was after them.
While consulting, word came that the sheriff with his posse were upon the march for Car-thage. This was received with tumultuous alarm, and the whole party left town in great confusion, resolved upon rallying all their ad-herents in the nine adjoining counties, and fully determined to subject the entire population of Nauvoo to the ordeal of the firebrand and sword. They now stigmatise the whole body of new settlers as "Jack Mormons," and will treat, all alike who may be found in the city ten days hence.
The sheriff having deputized Capt. Clifford, the latter heads the posse of new citizens, (over three hundred strong,) and will confine his ope-rations to defensive measures, and such only as the laws of the country recognize.
"The citizens of several towns on the river have sent in an offer of their services, and from present appearances, it would require at least, 5000 desperate men to carry out the threats of the anti-Nauvoo party.
"The city is under as rigid a military organi-zation as if regularly besieged ; and a surprise by night or day is impossible. Picket guards are kept up at a distance of two miles in every direction. "The new citizens are about organizing two or three military companies, (one of cavalry,) and will apply to the State for arms."
