Thanks Erik.

 From my Ubuntu OS, When i start like: "emacs file.txt &",
in the first window i see the contents of the file "file.txt".
In the second split window, below the first, I see Information about
"GNU Emacs".
Like: "Welcome to GNU Emacs...".

Here are the contents of the ~/.emacs file:
(custom-set-variables
  ;; custom-set-variables was added by Custom.
  ;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful.
  ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
  ;; If there is more than one, they won't work right.
)
(custom-set-faces
  ;; custom-set-faces was added by Custom.
  ;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful.
  ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
  ;; If there is more than one, they won't work right.
 )


Try adding

(setq inhibit-startup-screen t)

to your .emacs.

Or, start emacs with the --no-splash option.

       Hello,

       When I start emacs with a file, the window is automatically
       split horizontally into two
       from the beginning. How do I remove this setting (that is, no
       initial splitting by default)?

       I am using GNU Emacs 23.1.1 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version
       2.20.0).

       Thanks,
       Mitul
