This is a reflector style telescope on an equatorial mount. The mount must be POLAR ALIGNED in order to use it. Never buy a telescope from Wal Mart or JC Penny etc etc-- these are usually "toy" telescopes that are NOT suitable for Astronomy.
All eyepieces go into the FOCUSER end of the telescope. You never said if this is a REFRACTOR or a REFLECTOR style telescope.
On a refractor you have a lens in the front and the focuser in the back.
On a reflector the focuser is on the SIDE of the telescope near the front end.
The diagonal goes in first --- and the eyepiece goes into the diagonal -- if this is a refractor style telescope. Here is a picture of the DIAGONAL. http://www.telescope.com/control/accessories/telescope-diagonals/1*25-inch-orion-enhanced-mirror-star-telescope-diagonal
If it's like the picture it is a reflector style telescope mounted on an equitorial mount. Meade has a very similar telescope, and Meade also has a web page with all their manuals. They all go together about the same way.
Look under REFLECTOR for one similar to your telescope and download a manual here: http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html
This is very similar to your scope. http://www.meade.com/manuals/TelescopeManuals/Reflectors/062002Jupiter114EQ-D.pdf
