Confiscation of property in Portsmouth.

A gentleman who arrived from Portsmouth yesterday, states that the Yankees are confiscating the property of all citizens there known of suspected to be loyal to the Confederacy. They have even gone so far as to take the furniture of Col. J. G. Hodges, of the 14th Virginia, and Col. David J. Godwin, of the 9th Virginia, out of their houses, and shipped it North for sale. Their recent reverses on the Rappahannock seem to have rendered them more vindictive than ever, and a general confiscation in Norfolk and Portsmouth is expected.
