Destruction of Salt Works.

--The Yankees have broken up the salt works at St. Andrews' Bay and St. Josephs, Fla. A letter says:

‘ The Yankees first came ashore at St. Andrews under a flag of truce, to ask if any armed forces were there to protect them, and being told there were none, they returned to their vessels and got axes battering-rams, &c., and came on shore and broke every kettle, furnace, &c., and told our men if they attempted to make salt there any more they would shell them.
