If you read down this page there is a manual
This is a cheaply made in China reflector telescope. It is mounted on a small equatorial mount which is too small to support the tube. It will be very shaky. These scopes appear on Craigslist after the owner determines they are really just a "toy" telescope.
You can do much better for their $249 asking price. Look at a Dobsonian telescope like one of these.

This is a Fisher Price toy telescope. You will not find an operational manual.
Return the scope, it's considered junk. After you return it, consider a reflector on a Dobsonian mount as your first telescope. Like this one:

You will not find a manual. BUT you do not need one.
This is a very simple reflector telescope on an Equatorial mount. The mount must be polar aligned in order to properly use the scope. Read my TIP in my profile section about aligning an Equatorial mount.
The major steps are:
Align the small finder scope with the main telescope tube on a distant object.
Set the Declination axis to your Latitude.
Align the main tube with the axis of the mount.
Point the entire mount toward the North Star Polaris.
Use the fine RA & DEC knobs to center Polaris in the eyepiece.
See this web site and my tips--
This is why we NEVER recommend an EQ mount to a beginner. Polar Alignment just introduces one more FRUSTRATION to someone new to the Astronomy hobby.
The eyepieces simply go into the focuser. The Larger the number written on the eyepiece the LESS the magnification.
Take the scope outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object using the eyepiece with the largest number.
The manual WILL NOT tell you how to find those small dim objects in the sky. It's just assembly instructions.It does not tell you how to become an amateur astronomer.
Locate a local Astronomy club and seek advice from the members, who will be glad to help you with your telescope.

You never said what reflector you own? or what type of MOUNT it is on? However here is Meade's web site with manuals-- look under the 4.5 inch reflector heading for one that is similar to your scope. They all assemble and are used in a similar fashion.
