Can you fill in the blanks for me on this 19th century US citizenship law?

I recall reading somewhere about a 19th century American law whereby a child born in the US would be a citizen only if the father was a citizen and the child was male. It applied either to all non-whites or to only asians. I can't seem to find this anywhere. . . probably because I can barely remember the details!
Does this ring a bell for anyone?
