Murderous Outrage at Tuscaloosa.

We are reliably informed by a party just from Tuscaloosa, that Mr. Randolph, editor of the Monitor, has just murdered a freedman with a Bowie knife. We expected as much from the bloodthirsty articles in that atrocious rebel sheet. Now, what will the military authorities do in this case? We have full confidence in General Sheppard, and hope that he will speedily investigate this matter, and bring the guilty party to immediate punishment by a military commission. If turned over to the civil authorities, escape from proper punishment may be considered a foregone conclusion. Mr. Allen A. Williams, colored register, informs us that he was taken out by a portion of the Ku. Klux Klan, of Tuscaloosa, a few days ago, which ontraged his person in an infamons mauner. He bears numerons marks of their treatment, and is in this city where he has made a proper representation to Gen. Sheppard. In their flight the Ku Klux left several of their sheets.
