We theref'ore repeat, tliat, this township and city, are naniod after the Greek General, Demetrius Ypsilanti, who was being much spoken of in 1S25, when the Detroit proprietors, bought out the Krench claims and laid out the village. The Greck revolution, that was endcd by tho destruction of the Turkish navy at Navarino, and the independrnce of Grcece was in progress, and the bravery of Gen. Ypsilanti, was conspicuous. In the same war the G rocían Island of Scio was laid waste by the Turks, and sympathy feit lor the causo of the Grceks, induced the pioneers of tho western part of tho county to naiuo tlicir township Scio, as it is to this day. Wben this city was lirst named somc proposed to spoll it Ipsilanti, as it was thought tho pronunciation would bo uasicr seen ; but this soon feil into disuse and tho oorrect speUiniE, "Ypsilanti," prevailed. One advantage of this name is that there is not another placo of any iinportanue hearing it, on the continent of America. Thcrc is a post office of the same name n Mississippi we bclievc, but 60 little known that it must bc sought in postal guide books."
