LISBOA, Jose Antonio, Brazilian statesman. born in Rio Janeiro, 23 February, 1777; died there, 29 June, 1850. He received his early education in his native city, and was graduated in mathematics at Lisbon in 1801. He afterward went to France and England, and in 1804 returned to Portugal, where he was accused before the Inquisition of importing irreligious books, and fled to Brazil. In 1810 the king of Portugal created several new institutions in connection with the government of Brazil, and one of these, the Junta do commercio, was placed under the direction of Lisboa. He was appointed supervisor of the newly founded Bank of Brazil in 1821, and in 1825 commissioned to treat with Portugal and England regarding the liquidation of the Brazilian debt. He dismissed many of the English claims, and in 1830 the British envoy asked the government of Brazil to retire him; but this request was refused in a note dated 4 September, 1830, and on 3 November Lisboa was called to occupy the ministry of finance. In 1832 he was appointed a member of the commission for forming a commercial code, which was finished in a few months. From 1833 till 1835 he steadily worked to relieve the condition of the treasury, contributed to establish the mint, and organized a new bank. During the reign of Pedro II. Lisboa's services to the nation were rewarded with several decorations. He was a councillor of state and member of the Instituto historico-geographico Brasileiro. He published a biography of his friend Silvestre Pinheiro Ferreira (Rio de Janeiro, 1842). .
