MACEDO, Sergio Texeira de, Brazilian journalist, born in Rio Janeiro in September, 1809; died in Lisbon, Portugal, in 1865. He was graduated in law in Olinda in 1831, and immediately began his career as journalist, publishing the paper "Olin-dense." In 1832 he published in Rio Janeiro the "Verdade" and the "Aurora Fluminense." In 1833 he was appointed secretary of the Brazilian legation in France, and in 1834 became special envoy to Lisbon. In 1838 lie was sent to Rome to settle some difficulties between Brazil and the pope, and by his good offices the independence of Chili was recognized. Macedo was also minister to Turin in 1842, to France in 1843, and to Austria in 1847. In 1853 he was called by the government to Brazil to consult on its financial difficulties, and, although not a specialist, he settled the question satisfactorily, and restored the credit of the nation. In 1854 he began to agitate against the slave-trade, and the same year was appointed minister to London, where he gave valuable hints to the abolitionists in regard to preventing the trade from Africa.
