all seem to gather this is his arrival...
https://convictrecords.com.au/convicts/paul/john/15376

COMMITTAL.—On Saturday, a Pentonvillian per MAITLAND, named John Paul, was fully committed to take his trial for having robbed a man named Henry Gatehouse of a silver watch, on Wednesday evening last, in the house of Mr. George Self Smith, Victoria Tavern, under circumstances of considerable aggravation. When the prisoner was apprehended by Serjeant Stapleton, he suddenly thrust his hand into his pocket, and drawing forth three thimbles, exclaimed, “d—m it, its no use fitting me for these,” and threw them over a wall; one of them only was picked up, and that was ordered to be taken care of in case the prisoner should slip through the meshes of the law in the case of felony.
The Melbourne Argus, 13 April 1847.
 
Thanks Val.

I looked at possible convict arrivals and ruled that out. I'll look again.

Age would have to be 7 years out. Born Glasgow and tried in Lincoln? Lots of possible baptisms in England with a date that fits the age of that convict.
