The abolition of the slave trade by Great Britain was celebrated in this city on Monday last, by the African Abolition Freehold Society, in a very credible manner. Religious services were performed in the church in Belknap-street, and an address delivered on the occasion by the Editor of the Liberator. The day was remarkably fine, and we have rarely spent one more happily. At 3 o’clock, a large and highly respectable company sat down to a liberally provided dinner at the house of Mr. Primus Hall, who distinguished themselves for propriety of demeanor, gentlemanly manners, and ubounded kindness.
