Extrait de Un drame au Mexique :


Le 18 octobre 1825, l’Asia, vaisseau espagnol de haut bord, et l. a. Constanzia, brick de huit canons, relâchaient à l’île de Guajan, l’une des Mariannes. Depuis six mois que ces navires avaient quitté l’Espagne, leurs équipages, mal nourris, mal payés, harassés de fatigue, agitaient sourdement des projets de révolte. Des symptômes d’indiscipline s’étaient plus spécialement révélés à bord de los angeles Constanzia, commandée par le capitaine don Orteva, homme de fer, que rien ne faisait plier. Certaines avaries graves, tellement imprévues qu’on devait les attribuer à l. a. malveillance, avaient arrêté le brick dans sa traversée. L’Asia, commandée par don Roque de Guzuarte, avait été forcée de relâcher avec lui. Une nuit, le compas s’était brisé on ne sait remark. Une autre, les haubans de misaine manquèrent comme s’ils avaient été coupés, et le mât tomba avec tout son gréement. Enfin, les drosses du gouvernail s’étaient rompues deux fois pendant une importante manœuvre.
L’île de Guajan dépend, comme toutes les Mariannes, de l. a. capitainerie générale des îles Philippines. Les Espagnols, étant là chez eux, y purent donc promptement réparer leurs avaries.
Pendant ce séjour forcé à terre, don Orteva instruisit don Roque du relâchement de self-discipline qu’il avait remarqué à son bord, et les deux capitaines s’engagèrent à redoubler de vigilance et de sévérité.
Don Orteva eut à surveiller plus spécialement deux hommes de son équipage, le lieutenant Martinez et le gabier José.
Le lieutenant Martinez, ayant compromis sa dignité d’officier dans les conciliabules du gaillard d’avant, avait dû être plusieurs fois consigné, et, pendant ses arrêts, l’aspirant Pablo l’avait remplacé dans les fonctions de lieutenant de l. a. Constanzia. Quant au gabier José, c’était un homme vil et méprisable, qui ne pesait les sentiments qu’au poids de l’or. Il se vit donc serré de près par l’honnête contre-maître Jacopo, en qui don Orteva avait toute confiance.
L’aspirant Pablo était une de ces natures d’élite, franches et courageuses, auxquelles los angeles générosité encourage de grandes choses. Orphelin, recueilli et élevé par le capitaine don Orteva, il se fût fait tuer pour son bienfaiteur. Pendant ses longues conversations avec le contre-maître Jacopo, il se laissait aller, emporté par l’ardeur de sa jeunesse et l’élan de son cœur, à parler de l. a. tendresse filiale qu’il éprouvait pour don Orteva, et le courageous Jacopo lui serrait vigoureusement l. a. major, vehicle il comprenait ce que l’aspirant disait si bien. Aussi, don Orteva avait-il là deux hommes dévoués, sur lesquels il pouvait compter absolument. Mais que pouvaient-ils tous trois contre les passions d’un équipage indiscipliné ? Pendant qu’ils s’employaient jour et nuit à triompher de l’esprit de discorde, Martinez, José et les autres matelots marchaient plus avant dans los angeles révolte et los angeles trahison.
