It's a design from a Satsuma Rebellion series published by an obscure Osaka publisher called Kanai Genjirō 金井源治郎 (金井源次郎). The series is entitled "Kagoshima jiken shinpō" 鹿児嶋事件新報 (maybe something like "News of the Kagoshima Affair"), and this is design number 9. The design depicts the suicide of Saigō Takamori 西鄕隆盛, assisted by Beppu Shinsuke 別府晋介 (here 別府新助). The publication date is given as 1877.10.1.
The artist of the series appears to be unknown, but several other designs from the series can be found here:
