What is Understood, is Easier Managed. With a good deal better understand ing, a good deal better feeling and a good deal more hope the Docgeville Chronicle once more comes before the people. Its publishers had well nigh come to the conclusion to abandon the enterprise of publishing a paper and closing the printing office from no other cause under the sun than that of a want of means to carry it on, the expense for some time past being more than the in come and consequently (he concern was running the publishers in debt (of all things on this earth, save us from being in debt without the means to pay.) And moreover the publishers of the Chronicle had made up their minds from the little interest the people of Dodgevillc took in the paper and the little encouragement and support the business men of the place gave to it that it was a matter of perfect indeffer eiu c to them whether a paper is pub lished in the place or not. It seems however that this was a misunderstand ing on the part of the publishers of the Chronicle. The people, or at least a good many of them, have met and have expressed their views, and an under change of thought have taken place be tween the publishers and the people, a ' better understanding is obtained, and j now that we have come, as it were, nearer ! ’ ’ i together and understand one another j better. The Chronicle is to continue, J and the hope is that the Dodgevillc poo-! pic and the Dodgevillc printers will j work in harmony together for their mutual good. We have a good deal of faith in men when, without passion or excitement, they caucome together and understand one another and it will be no worse for the people or the paper that there has been a coming together in this way among us here so as to know one another ,better. A great many misun derstandings may be cleared up by calm talking. The people want a ncntrrl paper in Politics and a neutral paper in Pul ides they shall have so long as the present editor conducts this paper, and it is managed under the circumstances. This, in fact, is most in harmony with the editor’s own views, and if in any thing he has said heretofore, he has offended any man he is sorry for it. There are many things that may he written oven for a newspaper that may j be of as muc h use to mankind and as j well adapted for the improvement of a neighborhood as to enter into a wild j battlement in one sided politics. Let men think and act out their thinkings honestly in polities as well as other things. We have no intention of set ting man against man, and party against party on political questions in Dodge viile or elsewhere. These questions ot party we will leave to the people them selves to manage while we shall at all times sincerely aim at conducting of a paper that may be of real use to all, and streuously stick to our motto Neu- Tral in Politics ;—F airplay to A 11. And now we tin owffhe Chronicle once more before the people with the distinct understanding and trust to the people in town and county to be sup-s ported, any how, so as to keep out of debt while running the machine a economical as possible. Try Again ;—And we have tried hard, and have been anxious to get out a full sheet of the Chronicle this week, but we eannoe come it, the confusion of moving and fixing in our new office has thrown us ba.k some, but next week — next week without fail, the Chronicle will appear in its full size. And by the by, we thank the authorities of the town of Dodgeville for the privilege granted us to accommodations for our press. Ac., &e., in the Town Hall, and now we are fairly installed, and fairly at work to do the best we can in the printing line, good and cheap, for all who may favor us with a Job. 1 DODGEYILLE, WISCONSIN, THURSDAY, JANUARY 22, 1863.

A Transition. It was Monday evening at 9 o clock, and having been typing it all day steady as possible, we felt tired, and, as all de cent boys should, we retired to rest a j while, and we did rest, and, perhaps, I dreamed, but if we did, the dream is fled, , audit’s interpretation undiscovered. — ( We aw k. up —awoke up early, as early j ts five o’clock on Tuesday morning, and) I thought of the Chronicle and its des-j tiny. We ruhed our eyes, looked through ■ the window, what a transition! all was | ’. . 1 white, aye, white very white ; a blanket j all white, seemed to us to have fallen on ' every thing that we could sec, houses, I trees, rocks, the ground, the grass was wrapped in white pure white, and by a resolute dive into the profundity of math ematics, at the outer door of our sanc tum discovered that this pure white blanket that covered all, was four inches thick at 19 minutes to six o’clock on (he morning of Tuesday, Jan. 20th, 1803, and it was accumulating more and more. Pshaw ! was’nt it snow ! yes my friend, snow —pure snow, honest, clean, untar nished, unmistakable, undeceivcable snow, no sham, or mock, nor mimic, nor imitation, nor bogus nor swindle, norj gum-game, nor hypocrucy, nor cheat about this, it. is snow cold, pure, good, healthful snow, and vc wore glad to see it.

Cumberland—ln Front of 31 ur freesborough Jan. 3. To 11. W.Hallerk: —On the 2iJth of December we marched from Nashville in three columns; Gen. McCook by the Nolansville Bike, Gen. Thomas, from his encampment on the Franklin Pike, by tire Wilson pike, and Gen. Crittenden on the main Murfrees boro ugh pike. Our left and centre met with a strong resistance, such as tho na ture of the country permitted ; the roll ing or hilly routes, skirted by cedar thickets and farms, intersecte by small streams with rocky and bluffy banks, forming serious obstacles. Gen. McCook drove Gen. Hardee's corps about a mile and a half from No lansville, and occupied the place. Gen. Crittenden reached within a mile and a halfe of Lavergno. Gen. Thomas reach ed Wilson's pike, meeting with no op position. On the 27th Gen. McCook drove Gen. Hardee from Nolansville and pushed a reconnoitering division six miles toward Shclbyvillc, which found that Gen. liar dee had retreated towards Murfrecs borough. Gen. Crittenden fought and drove the enemy before him, occupying the lino of Stuart’s Creek, and capturing some prisoners with slight loss. Gen. Thomas occupied the vicinity of Nolansville, where he was partially sur prised, thrown into confusion and driv en hack. Gen. Sheridan’s division had repuls ed the enemy four times and had pro tected the flank of the centre, which had not held its own but advanced until this untoward event which compelled me to retain the left wing to support tho right until it should be rallied and assume a new position. On the first the rebels opened by an attack on us and were again repulsed. On the 2d there was skirmishing along the front, with threats of an attack, un til 3 o’clock P. 31., when the enemy ad vanced. 1 threw a small division across Stone river to occupy the vising ground there, and while reconnoitering the ground occupied by this Division, which had no artillery, I saw a heavy force coming from the woods and advancing in line of battle, three lines deep. They drove our little division before them ut ter a sharp conflict, in which they lost 70 or 80 killed and37G wounded. They were finally repulsed by Gen. Ncgley’s division, and the remaining troops of left wing of Gen. Morton’s Pioneer brig ade tied far over the field and beyond their entrenchments, their officers rally ing them with great difficulty. We occupied tho ground with the left about night- The lines were completed at 4 o'clock on Monday. The third day was spent in bringing up and distributing provis ions and ammunition. It has been rain ing very heavy. Camp near Murfrccsborough, Jan. 4. —To Maj, Gen. Ilalleclc : —[ add the following to my dispatch of last evening: I have to announce that the enemy are in full retreat. They left last night The rain having raised the river, and the bridge across it between the left wing and centre being incomplete, I deemed it prudent to withdraw that wing during the night. This occupied my time till four o’clock, and fatigued the troops. The commencement of the retreat was known to me at 7 o’clock this morning, Louisville, Jan., s.—Murfreshoro ad vices represent the federal victory os complete. The entire rebel army is fleeing toward Tullahoma in great dis order. Our ammunition train arrived during the night.
