The jury could not reach a verdict in the case, which was tried in the Massachusetts Court of Common Pleas (Criminal Session) in Cambridge Massachusetts" (Cohen). Kalloch was defended by the eminent lawyer and politician Richard Henry Dana, Jr. [1815-1882]. The trial resulted in a hung jury. Kalloch later moved to San Francisco and became that city's mayor in 1879. The Full Report includes the judge's charge, but not the jury's final verdict.
