Another press destroyed.

--On the 21st inst the Monitor, a Democratic paper printed at Huntington, Penn. was destroyed by the mob. Free speech and free press have a rough road to travel in Yankeedom. The Monitor, of Huntington, was a seditious sheet, no doubt, and not to be tolerated by the savory and discriminating mob! The mob, taking upon itself the defence of the Constitution and public liberty at the North, must have destroyed some dozen newspapers since the war began. Very properly, as they were serving the Government, none of them have for this been annoyed by frivolous arrests and prosecutions!
