IA correspondent of the Elmira Advertiser
gives the following reasons for the new
railroad deciding to call their station on
Orcutt Creek Willawana" instead of
`Johnny Cake,"_, the name by which the
place has for so • many -years been desig
nated. The coirespondent says: "The
following extract from the history of Bra&
ford county gives the origin of the name
given by the Ne w York, Lackawanna &
Western Railroad Company to their station
on Orcutt Creek: 'A colony of Monseys,
who for a time had their fires about the
head of Cayuga lake, near the Tustloes, in
the spring of 1766 removed to near the
mouth of Orcutt creek, in Athens town
ship, and called it Willawana.' This musi
cal name was thonght worthy of being per
petuated, and it was suggested to the rail
waY officials as a suitable one to take the
place of ridiculous 'Johnny-Cake,' and not
euphonious 'Orcutt Creek,' the present, ap
pellations of the village now standing on
the site of Willawana. The newriarne has'
the approval of the residents, and' applica
tion will be made to the post office depart
ment to have it giien their post-ofiice.—
The railroad company is not responsi
ble for the error in spelling, and it will be
corrected in the neat schedule. Willawana
is well worthy -to resume -Its place with
Tiogri, Susquehanna, Chomung, Sheshequin,
Towanda, Clayton,. Manoca, &c., in the
Indian nomenclature of this locality."
A piing man named Herbert,. who is a
telegraph operator at Frenchtown Station,
came to Towanda on Friday and purchased
a, suit of clothes, which he placed in a
satchel. As he was to go down the L. V.
RI R., on a freight train ho went to the
freight depot,'4 near. the Episcopal church
and place his baggage in a caboose stand
ing on the track. Having an hour or more - ,
to wait he sat' down by the — stove in the
freight office and fell asleep.
he looked for'his satchel and it wits mis
sing. Herbert called on Officer Burns and
they went up the track together, making
inquiries and looking along t the river bank
for the missing property. When near the
upper depot they spied a roughly dressed
.man coming toward them, of whom the
young man, who was in advance of the
officer, made Some inquiries. As soon as
the individual accosted• recognized, office r l ßurns he turned and !lea at a go-as-you
ft)lease speed. After a short search the
'satchel was found concealed under a rock
on the liver bank, with gape other stolen
property. There re very, particular rea
sons why that thidid not - desire a more
intimate acquaintance with Burns, which
may be developed hereafter.

ANOTHER PIONEER GONE
-Not having as yet seen what we deem a
svitable notice of the life and character of
our widely known, highly esteemed and
venerable friend, ex-Treasurer Wm. Bun
yan, who departed this life April let, 1881,
at t his residence , in Granville Bradford
County Pa. (after an illness of nine months),
aged 78 years (lacking 17 days,) will give
the following for the benefit of his many
Mr. Bunyan was born April lith, 1844,'
at Nev.-town, a small village about one and
hrilf miles from Melrose in Scotland, and
there his days of infancy, childhood, youth
and early manhood were spent, ' and there
he received his mincation and learned the
trade of house-jonier ' working six years as
,After completing his trade
he worked six months on Abbots- Ford the
residence of Sir Walter Scott, and in 1829
lie came to, this country and settled in
Havanna N. Y. ' and for several years
worked at his trtide.and there May 25th,
1832,h0 was married to Miss R. M. Fitz
gerad, and had he lived until the 24th of
next May they Would have reached the
period of their ' , golden wedding having
shared the joys and sorrows of this life
together for fifty yeai-s.
April sth 1839 he with his wife and tliree
children camelinto this town and settled in
the wilderness, in an old shingle shanty
near the spot where he died, after• having
lived there for forty-three years .lacking
four days. Mr. Bunyan raised with the
help of. his wife, a family of eleven children,
five boys and six gills, and lived to see nine
of them married, .worthy and respected
members of society.. The six daughters
are all living, but three 'of his sons pre
ceeded hith to the other world.
HIS eldes son William, a,Promising youth
was, killed to , the falling of a tree Dec..llth
1854. His second son Lieut. Snag A. was
killed in an attack on Fort Johnson . in
Charleston Harbor, July 241 1864, while
gallantly defending the flag of his country.
His fourth son Frank died June 26th 1881,
after an illness of two days, and just one
week before %Mr. B was stricken down
with "paralysis, a shock from 'which he
never recovered. In September 1869 Mr.
Bunyan in company with Adam Imes,
visited his native land, the home of his
birth after an absence of more than forty
years. When in 1839 he i began hewing
out his future home in the forest hispecuni
ary means.were quite limited, but hishealth
was then good and by industry persever
ance and economy he succeeded" until he
made as it were the wilderness to bud and
blossom as the rose. 1 "
Notwithstanding be had great' love for ,
his native country yet he took a deep and
obiding interest in every thing pertaining to
the welfare of the country of his adoption.
In October, 1871, he was elected County
TreaSurer, but froni circumstances over
which he had no control, it was of little
benefit to him pecuniarily. It ia'said, and
we think truly, that an honest man is the
noblest work of tied, and of such was Mr.
Bunyan. Thwriterhaving'been acquain
ted with him for over forty years, and all
this time liv, by him as a neighbor, can
bear evide to his undisputed honesty and
integrity in athis dealing, both publie and
private; in #act we believe "it was the
crowning principle of his life to do by
others as he would that others should do by
him. He was a great reader, . a deep
thinker, a free and easy talker, and had a
retentive memory which made 'Lim p-at all
times an interesting and nmeable•lperson
to meet, either at home or abroad, His
attachment for home and friends was very
strong, in fact he never forgot his friends,
but alwis'ys stood by them in f' adversity as
well as in prospe rity , and his house was
ever open to receive not only4the gay and
affluent, but the poor and down trodden of
every clime. -
Though God in his goodness had spared
his life to a good ripe old age, yet his' death
is a source of deep regret not only, to his
aged and enfeebled companion who, is be
reft of a devoted and affectionate husband,
and his children of a kind Fel indulgent
father, but by the community at large who
have ost a worthy councileor and a tried
and trusted friend. But let: ell be comforted
by these words, not;lcst but' gone before.
