I assume the fs is mounted (and clean) at /mnt/newfs

  (cd /mnt/newfs; restore rf /backup/file.dump)

will restore the entire dump ...

if you just want to copy files from A to B
you can use the sequence

 cd /mnt/B ; dump 0f - /mnt/A | restore rf -

if your dumps are pretty large, specifying a size
will help you -s  100000 (this is neither MB nor
kB or bytes, this is in feet ;)

make sure that restore has enough space on /var/tmp
