The title is "Meidan jinsei roku" 銘談仁政録.

The publisher is Gifuya Seishichi 岐阜屋清七, here identified by the firm name 正文堂 ("Seibundō" or "Shōbundō").

Carver is Matsushima Daijirō ("Hori Dai"), here given as 彫大次郎.

The date/censor seal is for 1865.11.

Based on looking at other designs from the series, I think the "hachi" is just "8", as in the 8th design in the series.

The actor is Iwai Shijaku II 岩井紫若. I'm not sure about the role... it starts with "Koheiji", maybe something along the lines of "Koheiji's wife, x"?

Another print from the series:
