Effeminancy

,—a word, the meaning of which was once illustrated by the French nation, till the noble spirit of republicanism destroyed the ancient character, and gave birth to those prodigies of heroism and magnanimity, that at present justly rank it the first nation of the earth. Effeminacy is now perfectly well described in Fop's Alley, at our Opera House in the Haymarket, by the descendants of Hampden, Russell, and other British patriots. The two nations have undergone a complete revolution of character. Regeneration and degeneracy.
