ORIGINAL POETRY. THE TOURIST'S PORTFOLIO.-No. I.

THE SLAVE DEALER. BY T. PRINGLE, Esq.

The following anecdote was related by the Rev. T. R. England, at an Anti-Slavery Meeting at Cork, in September, 1829.

“ One day I was sent for to visit a sailor who was approaching fast to his eternal account. On my speaking to him of repentance, he looked sullen, and turned from me in the bed ;-of a great God, he was silent-of the mercy of that God, and he burst into tears. 'Oh!' said he,

I can never expect mercy from God. I was ten years on board a slave ship, and then superintended the cruel death of many a sick slave. Many a time, amid the screams of kindred, has the sick mother, father, and newborn babe, been wound up in canvass and remorselessly thrown overboard. Now, their screams haunt me, night and day, and I have no peace, and expect no mercy!'”

From ocean's wave a wanderer came,

With visage tanned and dun :
His mother, when he told his name,

Scarce knew her long-lost son;
So altered was his face and frame

By the ill course he had run.
There was hot fever in his blood,

And dark thoughts in his brain;
And oh! to turn bis heart to good

That mother strove io vain,
For fierce and fearful was his mood,

Racked by remorse and pain,
And if, at times, a gleam more mild

Would o'er his features stray,
When knelt the widow near her child,

And he tried with ber to pray,
It lasted no:- for visions wild

Still scared good thoughts away.
“There's blood upon my hands," he said,

“ Which water cannot wash;
It was not shed where warriors bled,

But dropped from the gory lash,
As I whiled it o'er and o'er my head,

And with each stroke lest a gash.
“With every stroke I left a gash,

While Negro blood sprang high;
And now all ocean cannot wash

My soul from murder's dye;
Nor e'en thy prayer, dear mother, quash

That woman's wild death-cry!
" Her cry is ever in my ear,

And will not let me pray;
Her look I see-her voice I hear-
