A Chequered Week in Europe.

--The week which terminated on the 21st of January was distinguished in the old world as one of calamity. Violent gales have prevailed all over Europe, and have occasioned great damage. Houses have been blown down, trees rooted up, ships stranded or sunk, and the like. These storms have been intermitted with heavy falls of snow and with severe frost.--Accidents of all kinds have been unusually numerous, especially in England, where fogs have darkened the atmosphere and dimmed people's perceptions.
