The confiscation question in the Federal Congress.

--A Washington correspondent of the Baltimore San, dated 12th instant, says:

‘ The confiscation question assumes a new aspect almost every day Congress. Various new projects have been offered this week. One of them proposes that the property of rebels be converted to recompense loyal citizens for their losses. It will be at least six months before the subject will be disposed of by Congress, for no measure in regard to it can be passed without deliberate consideration and full discussion.
