Chess Player's Chronicle, 1854?

Added a problem tourney page for the Chess Player's Chronicle, 1854 tourney.

This is a bit of a mystery tourney: there's no known announcement or termination date, no known judges and no judges report.  The published prizewinning problems comprise more than the three best problems that are mentioned in the requirements, but there's no indication of just which of the respective set problems actually were the best three.

It is very probably the fallout of the 1852 tourney which was announced be terminated in the same issue as the results from this tourney were announced.
