updates to periodicals section

I corrected a typo to per.00004, "Song for Certain Congressman." Archive user André Hurtgen pointed out that the line "And pacify slace-breeding wrath" should read "And pacify slave-breeding wrath." Also, based on a suggestion from Susan Belsaco, I updated the bibliography of per.00185, the headnote for the Magazine of Art. I replaced "forthcoming" with the updated bibliographic information for the article "Editing Whitman's Poems in Periodicals."

Minor correction in markup of 1856 Leaves

Ryan Feather, one of the computer science students who is working on a comparison of the XML files of the editions of Leaves, pointed out an error in which a closing tag occurred before a page break where only a closing tag should have (at the bottom of page 133). I corrected and uploaded.

I've replaced the first item under "News and Updates" to show that the fundraising goals has been met, and I've revised support/index.html to the same end.
