If I understand you correctly...
I've never used "xemacs" but it looks like ssh needs to be set up to allow X forwarding to use it. Maybe you should try a text editor like joe or pico?

pico testfile.txt

If you'd like to have ssh be able to use X programs (graphical programs) look around for 'ssh x forwarding' or something along the lines of 'ssh graphics' on google/linux and this forum. I'm actually thinking of trying to set this up in the near future.

you can either do ssh with -X switch to enable X-forwarding, or start xemacs with -nw switch, which starts it in the terminal window.
