Here's a website I found with them listed out. How cool that they recorded them and sent them by telegraph and later the newspapers printed them!

Great stuff! But unfortunately, I don't think we can read from this source. The webpage says:
We are deeply indebted to the work of the Abraham Lincoln Association in collecting Lincoln's writings and publishing them as The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln. It was from this monumental work that these selections were taken. The copyright to The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln is owned by the Abraham Lincoln Association, and any further copying or use of these debate transcripts must be with their permission.
If we could find them in the newspapers of the times, that would be fair game . . .
