Three years later he wa? elected to the State L?gi?lature, on what was called the Cooperation ticket; that 1?, tho ticket in opposition to that run by those who advocated ?eoe??ion by South Carolina, whether she did or did not secure the cooperation of the other Southern States. Judge Green served for ?ix successive years, and In 1858 declined to be a candidate and resumed hi? pro? fession in Bumter. In 1864, he was again elected to the Lsgtslaturo. Ho took no part iu the war, and wa? generally regarded, therefore, as a Union man. In lSGC.hewas appointed by the Federal authorittcs.prcft dcut of the provost court at Sumter, aud held that posi? tion uutll civil authority was restored. When the Re? construction State Government wa? organized, he was elected Judge of the Third Judicial Circuit by a uuani mou* vote, and was unanimously re?'locted bv the Legis? lature upon the expiration of bl? term of office. Judge Oreen is a man of decided character, and au accomplished ?peaker. Hi? character Is irreproachable. Even the reg? ular Republican?, his present opponents, have, on this ?core, no word to say against him. Col. Martin It. Delaney, the nominee for the oftW of Lleutenant-Governor, wa? horn In Virginia and educated in Pennsylvania. Afterward he graduated In medicine at Harvard University, and lor 17 years practiced medi? cine In the United States and Canada.

President, was a delegate lu the Social Science OMWMM of i860, and was elected au as-toctate member of a number of lit? erary lustltutious.

From the flr-t he bus sought to inculcate tbe idea that the whites and black? are dependent on each other, and that without either race the South cannot prosper. He ha? been a staunch advocate of minority representation on the ground that the black?, while lu the majority, ?hould give the white? the proportional representation to whl.-b they are entitled, and so protect t4ieui?elvci again?! the coming of tne not distant day when the black? will be in a minority in the State.
