The expression のでは is often used to indicate belief or confidence that something is the case.
ここ
やす
なった
ほう
よい
It would be better if you took a rest here.
In this usage, のでは is a contraction of のではないか (is it not the case that ~?).
そのつもり
った

I didn't mean that.
Here, のでは is a contraction of のではない.
Note that the same combination of sounds can come up as part of several other forms (such as the use of の to nominalize a verb, followed by では to indicate a state) and consequently with a different meaning.
