We shall give the report to our readers uext week. We did not notice the promised coming of the Woodhull, and had not designed a notice of her sayings and doiugs at the Opera House on Monday evening ; but we feel it our duty to say, for the sake of disapproving and condemmng that the audience which gathered to hear her, or rather " not to hear her," disgraced themselves and our city by their performances. We are no sympathizer with the views oi Mrs. Woodhull, and will concede that she is anything but a true woman and that her utterances and teachings -in her newspaper and on the platform - are pernicious ; but, then, no one is under compulsión to go and heaT her, and all going are under obligation to let her say her say in peace. The way to treat her is to let her speak to empty seats, while such disgraceful scènes as those of Slonday evening will add to her fame and notoriety, and that to the discredit ol all participating in them. Mrs. Woodhull could have imburdened herself in the presence of a few fellowBpirits or curiosity seekers without material injury to any good cause, but our fair city, the University or the cause of truth and good order cannot afford such demonstrations as those referred to and which we will not detail.
