Hi Brett,

I checked the newspaper arrival to see if SUCCESS was carrying assisted 
emigrants, and it looks likely that it did, however it doesn't indicate 
"Government emigrants."
_________________________________________________________________________
Colonial Times (Hobart, Tas)
  Friday 23 November 1849 page 2

  PORT OF HOBART TOWN,

ARRIVALS.

November 20 -Success ship 621 tons. Steward from London the 1st of 
August with a general cargo Passengers-Mr and Mrs Ecleston four children 
and servant. John Thornton Esq., Surgeon Superintendent and 218 emigrants
_________________________________________________________________________

This link shows the amount paid by various classes of emigrants ... age, 
sex &c.   It is for South Australia 1849, but I imagine it would be similar

You may find something more in the Colonization Circular
