Tbe Attorney-General moves to dismiss for tbat tbe defendant served no case on appeal and there is no “case agreed” or case on appeal settled by tbe judge appearing in tbe record. But an appeal will not be dismissed for failure of appellant to serve a case on appeal. Tbe appeal itself constitutes an exception to tbe judgment and presents tbe case for review of alleged error appearing on tbe face of tbe record. Lawrence v. Lawrence, 226 N.C. 221, 37 S.E. 2d 496.
No error appears on tbe face of tbe record. To afford grounds for relief on a motion in arrest of judgment, it must be made to appear tbat tbe record is in some respect fatally defective and insufficient to support tbe judgment entered. S. v. Cochran, 230 N.C. 523, 53 S.E. 2d 663; S. v. Billiard, 223 N.C. 446, 27 S.E. 2d 85; S. v. Gaston, 236 N.C. 499. Tbe record does disclose tbat a magistrate issued a search warrant returnable before tbe judge of tbe municipal court of tbe city of New Bern. We may concede, without deciding, tbat such warrant is unauthorized by statute and was void. Even so, there is nothing in tbe record tbat indicates any information discovered by authority of this warrant was offered in evidence against defendant. Furthermore, tbe search warrant constitutes no proper part of the record. S. v. Gaston, supra.
Tbe other questions tbe defendant seeks to present are not properly before us for consideration or decision.
