Real Lager beer.

--We have received from the City Brewery a sample of the beer made there. It is fully equal to Northern beer, having strength, softness, and a foam equal to cream ale. Before the war beer was test displacing whiskey in the popular stomach, and the good effects were becoming apparent, Compared with the poison now sold at the rum mills under the name of whiskey, the worst beer would be welcome; but when a man can get such an excellent beverage as that made at the City Brewery he ought to be willing to drop the poisonous compound of oil of vitrol, nails, strychnine, &c., which is sold to him for one dollar per drink as bourbon, old rye, &c.
