More Rascality. --The New York Herald publishes a letter from Harrisburg, Pa., giving an account of an attempt in the Legislature of that State to confiscate certain real estate in Pennsylvania, owned by Hon. James M. Mason, of Virginia. The following proceedings of the Legislature appear at the close of the letter: "Mr. Ball read in his place an act relative to James M. Mason, now or lately a Senator of the United States. It alleges that Mr. Mason has been guilty of treason, in giving aid and comfort to rebels; that he, or his wife, is possessed of valuable property in Philadelphia, and authorizes the Speaker to appoint a committee to examine into the facts, and report to the Legislature hereafter; and until said committee shall make report, no conveyance of said property shall be acknowledged, and if the allegations shall prove true, said estate of James M. Mason and wife shall be forfeited to the Commonwealth."
