Look out for a Dodge.

--The Milledgeville Union, of April 29th, says:

‘ We do not believe McClellan intends to force his way to Richmond over the bayonets of our army on the Peninsula. That would not suit the man. He intends to threaten our army until we get our whole disposable force concentrated there, and then give them a dodge, and attempt to turn our position and march suddenly upon Richmond, by some other route — perhaps by the way of Fredericksburg. No doubt our military men have their eyes open to such a trick, but the assailant has greatly the advantage in such movements. We have to guard every point, not knowing when the enemy may strike, and he can choose his time and place to strike, unless our commanders do as those at Corinth did, anticipate his movements and disconcert his plans by attacking him. We should not be surprised to see the crafty foe taken in the toils he is preparing for others. One thing is pretty certain, he is concentrating his whole force for a movement either against Richmond or Norfolk, and we may expect to hear exciting news in a few days.
