DEATH of a PIONEER STOCKTONIAN -- We regret to learn that Mr. John H. KEELER, late of this city, died in Benicia on Sunday evening last, of consumption. Mr. KEELER was among the earliest settlers of Stockton, having emigrated hither from New York in 1849, and made this city his place of residence from that time until his recent connection with the 3rd Regiment, as Sutler, which necessitated his removal to Benicia. Prior to the establishment of the "Shades" by the deceased, in the fall of 1851, he was engaged in running an express between this city and the mining camps on the Stanislaus and Tuolumne rivers, in which he was pecuniarily successful. His connection with the "Shades Saloon" brought him into intimate relationship with sporting men throughout the State, and gained him troops of friends among those who will regret his demise. He leaves a wife and adopted daughter, and a number of relatives, some of whom took their departure on the steamer yesterday for the purpose of paying the last tribute of respect to one who possessed many sterling qualities of the heart. Mr. KEELER was 47 years of age, and a native of New York city.
