You're using the selection method of the terminal emulator program, not
Emacs.  Either use the keyboard to select --- which will select in
Emacs, or use the style from the terminal program.  For example, in
xterm (the one and only), use Mouse-1 to mark and Mouse-3 to select,
Mouse-2 to paste.  In other words, click where you want your selection
to start, scroll to where you want it to end, and click Mouse-3.

Of course, this won't work in Emacs in a terminal emulator.  Is there a
reason you're not using the X interface?  Because you're ssh'ing in to a
remote server?

Check out Multi-TTY, available in CVS Emacs.
