  Brig - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In sailing, a brig is a vessel with two masts at least one of which is square rigged.
In modern parlance, a brig is square rigged on both masts, and this is the standard name for such a vessel.
Previously, "brig" has been used as an abbreviation of "brigantine", which in modern parlance is the standard name for a principally fore-and-aft two-masted rig with a square rigged foremast but which also has other historical meanings.

 Hermaphrodite brig - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A hermaphrodite brig, or brig-schooner, is a type of two-masted sailing ship which has square sails on the foremast combined with a schooner rig on the mainmast (triangular topsail over a gaff mainsail).
As such it has a mix of the two main types of sail plan, hence the term hermaphrodite.
Another explanation given by Antony 'Tiger' Timbs, owner of a brigantine, is, that the correct term for a two-masted vessel with square sails on foremast and fore-and-aft-sails on main mast is anyway 'hermaphrodite brigantine'.

We went to work immediately, and put all the canvas upon the brig which we could get upon her, rigging out oars for studding-sail yards; and continued wetting down the sails by buckets of water whipped up to the mast-head, until about nine o’clock, when there came on a drizzling rain.

 USS Peacock
However, the affair was treated lightly, and on the 3rd of March the Epervier, without a man of her crew being changed, sailed, in company with the Shelbourne schooner, for the "protection" of a small convoy bound to Bermuda and the West Indies.
No answer being returned to the brig's signals, the English ensign and pendant which the Peacock hoisted did not remove the suspicions of her being an enemy; and accordingly the Epervier made the signal to that effect to her convoy.
Having by this time shot away the brig's main topmast, and rendered her completely unmanageable, the Peacock directed the whole of her fire at her opponents hull, and presently reduced the Epervier's three waist guns to the disabled state of the others.
