MIRANDA-RIBEIR0, Jose Cesario, Brazilian statesman, born in Minas in 1792 ; died in Rio Janeiro, 7 May, 1856. He received his early education in his native country, and in 1816 entered the University of Coimbra, Portugal, where he was graduated and admitted to the bar in 1819. This same year his province elected him its representative to the constituent assembly of Lisbon, but the affairs of Brazil attracted his attention, and he returned in January, 1822. He was appointed judge of the district of S. Joao d'El Rei, and in 1824 of the city of Rio de Janeiro, and in that year was elected representative to the assembly, where by his devotion to the public Welfare he gained the confidence of all parties. He was appointed inspector of diamonds in the city of Diamantina in 1826 and held Grace until 1828, when he was called to be councillor of state. In 1831 he resigned to devote himself exclusively to canning the public excitement of that time, and thus prevented a general revolution in 1836. He was appointed president of the province of S. Paulo, and of Minas in 1837, and in both he gained reputation by his financial measures, which caused general prosperity. He was elected senator for the province of S. Paulo, 22 February, 1844, and in the senate his advice was much esteemed, above all in connection with education. In 1839 he was an active member of the Instituto geographico Brasileiro, which is indebted to him for many services, and he also belonged to other scientific and literary societies.
