Anti-Slavery progress in Great Britain, celebrated here

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.
