PEREIRA, Jose Saturnino da Costa, Brazilian engineer, born in Sacramento, 22 November, 1773; died in Rio Janeiro, 9 January, 1852. He was graduated at Coimbra, returned to Rio Janeiro, and when the Academy of mathematical, physical, and natural sciences was founded, 4 December, 1814, was appointed a professor, and also wrote several text-books. His brother, Hypolito Jose da Costa Pereira Furtada de Mendonga, published in England the " Correio Braziliense" after 1807, and kept Pereira secretly informed of the political designs of the Brazilian government, probably with the connivance of the prince regent, afterward King John VI. When the independence of Brazil was proclaimed and the constiution had been framed, Pereira entered the senate in 1828 for the province of Matto Grosso, and on 16 May, 1837, he became minister of war under the regent Diogo Antonio Feijo. He published "Tratado elementario sobremecamsmos," " translated from the French of Fournier, with additions, "' Investigacigos tocando os mais volmni nosos dos corpos de igual superficie," " Diccionario topographico do Emperio do Brazil," "Historia germ dos animales," " Elementos de Geodesia." " Elementos dos mecanicos," and "Applicac/go de Algebra a Geometria ou geometria analytica," according to the system of Lacroix. These were all published in Rio Janeiro between 1845 and 1850.
