This question keeps being asked recently.  Lots of people have posted
code using xsel and xclip.  Some of which doesn't work properly
(http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/help-gnu-emacs/2014-05/msg00100.html
), but I think the ones posted in this thread are ok.

What's the point of running the terminal version of Emacs in X?  If you
want windowing then why not run the X version?  If you don't want
windowing, then why both run X at all?

BR,
