Here is John Leiper:

Name: John Andrew Leiper
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1857
Age: 4
Admission Date: 12 Feb 1861
 
Sydney, New South Wales
Randwick asylum for destitute children, after being deserted by his father who was a drunkard, while his mother was in service

The Philadelphia Passenger List is an unknown - I am not aware of who that person could or would be and without connection of that person to Australia or to England/Scotland, it's not something that's obviously relevant at this time.

The Randwick Asylum for Destitute Children record - that is for Andrew Leiper's son John Andrew Leiper.
