It is supposed that the military chieftain of Ireland, with the views from either side before him, will take sides with President O. Mahoney; for the present, at all events. The appearance of their Secretary of War before the Senate yesterday, his speech there, and his interview with the military delegation of nine, who have just arrived from Ireland, are said to have excit
