PELOTAS, Patricio Jose Correa da Camara (pay-lo'-tas), Viscount of, Brazilian soldier, born at sea about 1740; died in Rio Pardo, 28 May, 1827. He was brought up in Portugal, enlisted in an infantry regiment, and during the earthquake at Lisbon in 1755 was on duty at the royal treasury. He served for some time in Indian garrisons, but was afterward sent to Rio Janeiro. On his arrival he was appointed to superintend the conversion of the Jesuit college into a military hospital, but when the war against the Spaniards in the south began in 1774 the governor-general, the Marquis of Lavradio (q. v'.), sent him to the field, where he assisted at the taking of Fort S. Tecla. In 1801 hostilities were renewed, and Correa participated in the five months' campaign that followed, retaking Fort St. Tecla and the town of Batohy, and checking the invasion of Rio Grande by the army of the Marquis of Sobremonte. In 1812 and 1816-'18 he served again with the rank of general.
