Just b.fore the vote was taken on the
English. Kansas bill, in the Senate of the
I'uited States, Senator Cameuon said :

I am, as you all know, not much of a
public speaker, having but little capacity
iu that way, aud no taste for it. 1 often
felt disposed to take part in the debate ;
but when I proposed to do so, 1 deferred
to others ; and sometimes when I felt
like going on, I found that some gentle
man was ili;eussing the question better
than I could hope to de. I rise at this
time ouly to say that I disapprove of the
proposition uow before the Senate, much
more than I did of the origiual attempt to
