He next look up what Mr. Newman claimed to be the
great law prohibiting pol?gamy. I^vit. xviii., 1?. Ac
cording to Kilo,- j.i im ?'s traaalatlon.lt read: "Weither
..halt thou take a wife to her sister." Hu friend New?
man, together with Messrs. Dwight, Kdwards, and
others, dlaagree with that translation, and aomebody had
in-crtcd a .Pil?rent leading in the margin, viz: "Thou
Saan nut take one wife to another" Mr.
Newman held to lim marginal reading, and nut
the i.-xt, lo l?e currect. Tins?- great commenta?
tor? who thus alter King James's translation, a? wella.?
the translator? were inoiiogami.-ts?monogamist? con?
ti iiiling with ?a? It other. Mr. Newman irgued that
the lbl.row contained ?oraething a little dur?rent from
King James's translation. He had exauiineil Du- text in
Du i Hebrew, ami he alhrmed that there was uo word in
Hie original Of the text that could be translated wife. It
was manufacture?! scripture, for which there wus no
i. anon bin that the Iranalalnra wrrti monitgamlata end
were afraid they should not find anything In the llible
. uiiilemiilng pulvgiuny, and, thereiure, inaiiufaetur.-il it.
If tiny ha?, the right to manilla, turc a w.id t?)
sii-tain them, then he hail th.? same right, and
to make it read, " Bhalt not take one sister to another."
This was th?' true rendering. It was a part ami portion
of the law of consanguinity winch tilled tIn- rest of the
chapter, prohibiting the marriage o? mst.'r.s in Unit day.
I.e.-aii-e of the tendency to ))in?rrel lietweon blood re?
lations. He il.Ticd Mr. .New man and all Die World of
Hehnweeholan to find _H"*r?_"-rd la the original to be
translated wife, if ?he rendering U- given that is inthe
margin. Is ? aus.? thcie i~ uu noun preceding the words I
'' one to unuther."
Be referred agada to the unlimited nature of the com
i)).in?ls a.I.lu. ed bl him from the Hll?le on the first day of
the ?i? bate Mr. Newman bad judged all thon panag*.
by the gn'at loun.latiou principie be t laime.l to have

Newman had mis.ippieheiided. Thal fallimr, therefore,

If tin* passage forbidding the king to multiply wives
uuto hiiuaelf confined linn lo one wife, then lb.? samo
..,iiiin nul, .ullin..! lum to one horse. The married kins?
man of Bona it? knowledged that the law was binding on
him hy saying," ?io and re.le.ni my right." The pansages
from Matthew and Malachi, made ao mu. h of by Mr.
Newman, refeire?! to ?livor? e ami not to polygamy. The
marrilni* of a second wife without putting away
the first was not adultery. The weeta "duty
uf marriage" meant more than betrothal, ac?
cording to Gibbs, Professor of Theology in
Yale I-U.-ge, it meant cohabitation. Ib.-ea ?lui not
diiori?1 mi? harlot before ho married the other. ITere
WBB a law of God, general In its nuture. or if limited, It
couldn't be proved. There wa? no law against it. It
stood a? Immovable its the Ko? k of Ages, and would
stand when heaven and earth should pass away. It was
a law that waa binding on aucient Israel. He was sorry
he bad not more time, but, Having ?llscussed the .ul.jctt,
would leavi- it to all candid |s-rs..iis to judge.
?IR. MKWMAN CI.OSKS TIIK llKHATK
Mr. N'.'W in.ni sahl that it was unfortunate that Ins dis?
tinguish?'.1 friend, In his wonderful numerical ctlctihi
tr.Inul b.-i.scil It on the ?is-iiimptluit that the slaving of
the male children uf the Hebrews continued through M
i? ais nml fallid to prove it. Until he could prove that,
his argument had no more foundation than a vision. Kc
sp?-. ung the great law piuhil.itin?,-polt gamy,lu- r.-allii m, .1
that the marginal translation was p.ife? t to a word.
The gentleman bad la!x?r?-d han! to show that Hod didn't
mean what be sahl?" One woman to another." He ad?
mitted the translatinn In seven of the eight passages to
be correct, why not in the eighth I HU admission
knocki'd his argument to pieces. He challenged lum to
meet him on paj-er, any tim?' or atiywh?-*?-, un thell.-brew
ofthisbxt. The marginal was the true rendering. He
referred la in? openlageueeeh to the margin tostreagthea
hla argument, ami it was a poor rule that
wouldn't wurlf. both ways. Suppose it meant
what Mr Pratt claimed. Dr. Newman proved
yesterday that this law of Moats is not kept hv the
Mormon?. Where waa his solemn denunciation of this
violation of I>lvine law 1 Yesterday he pronounced a
. ai-e ..ii him that fuiiiiniii'th nil the words of this .aw to
do Dum. Did not that curse rest ?n him and his ??-opie I
T.. save aOLjganty, ha stood here la the sight of God and
Hie angels, and t>e.<?re this intelligent aii.lleii.e a, ?tnowt
edged that this people sit G?>il '? I iw at de Ha nee. What
resp-ct was du?' hi? argument from the teaching? of
Moses lu support of polygamy I
lloapoi tinii UM parallel betwnn the King's multiplying
wives and horses, there waa no law in regard to horses,
but there was in r,-gar?t to wives. If on unequal footing,
then lhere was no limit to the nuinU-r of wives a m in
might have. A passage >>f Beripian wa? otteii gaoled la
favor of pul.ygaiiiy to the effect that if a man foi sake his
w ife be shall have a hundred. If It vas good to forsake
hi? wife. In tha' B use. It would be better to forsake the
hundred. Then he should have in,0U0. This la the argu?
ment in Mr. Pratts book. " The Ban." Why. such a man
would keep the Almighty busy creating wives for him.
(-. nsation.j He tv gritted that he hadn't time to notice
all th?1 pointa made by his opponent; be desired to ?lo so;
li. had pleaded for more time ; so h-..l his fnedds, but it
hail I?'?1!! .1.Tiled him.
He would now take up his argument where he left it
yesterday, and apply the great law he had proclaimed
on that occasion, lu the Hll.b, there wore at most li or
?Oca-ies of -Mdygaiuv recorded out of the millions of
people Of whom it was UM hi-t?.r>, ?nd upon the example
