ROCHA, Justiniano Jose da (ro'-chah), Brazilian journalist, born in Rio Janeiro, 8 November, 1812; died there in 1863. He received his education in France, at the College of Henry IV., and returned to S. Paulo, where he was graduated in law. In 1836 he founded the periodicals "Atlante" and "Chronista," the last in opposition to the regent, Diego Antonio Feijo. In 1839 he became a member of the Conservative party, and, ceasing to publish the "Chronista.' founded the " Brazil" in 1840, in which he opposed the declaration of the majority of the emperor. When the ministry of the majority was organized on 24 July, his journal became the organ of the opposition.
