''In any case, thero is wanting at this moment in Ireland but one man, and this man Providonce seems to have especially marked out. "This man has valiantly gained his spurs in Algeriu, at the Malakoff bastion, in the plains of Lombardy, and, if need be, he vvould not be embarrassèd to cut out a crown for hirnself ou the plains of green Erin. "This man is one of those whom a people are always happy to meet, and whom Kings willingly siilute with a titío of brother, - this man is MacMahon."
