It's a satirical print by Utagawa Yoshiharu entitled "Ryūkō hai zukushi" 流行はい尽し. I'm afraid I don't know how to translate that; "ryūkō" 流行 is usually "fashionable" in this context, and "zukushi" 尽し (modern form 尽くし) is "all kinds of", but I don't know the sense of "hai". The imagery leads me to think that the subject relates to the currency crisis of the Bakumatsu period.

The date/censor seal is for 1860.6, and the publisher is Jōshūya Jūbei 上州屋重兵衛.

Another impression of this can be found on this Japanese-language page (item #59):
