Use the "terminal monitor" command.

router1#conf t

router1(config)#logging monitor informational


router1#terminal monitor

I do not want to be overly precise, but there is inconsistency in your question. Console messages are displayed on the console, which is a hard wired connection, when you enable logging console. You do not get to the console via SSH, so in a precise sense you can never see console messages with SSH. Many people use console message and syslog message interchangeable, and I believe that this is what you did. So if your question is really about how to view syslog messages with SSH then Ahmed has given the correct answer that terminal monitor will display syslog messages on the VTY lines which you may access via SSH.
