I'm not sure I understand your setup (is your emacs running inside the
gnome-terminal?  From where to where are you copy&pasting?).

But at least you can copy&paste from/to (non-X)Emacs running in
a terminal by installing the `xclip` package via `M-x list-packages`
and enabling `xclip-mode`.  This of course also requires the `xclip`
executable to be installed, but after that C-y and C-w "just work".
