Here's what's on the print:

近世水滸傳 Kinsei Suikoden ("Modern Suikoden")
白滝佐七 Shirataki Sashichi
国周筆 Kunichika hitsu
吉 加々や Kichi, Kagaya (publisher Kagaya Kichibei)
尾上梅幸 Onoe Baikō

It's not easy to find prints from this series, and it is not listed in Marks, but here's one I've found:

That one has a date/censor seal, and (despite the seller's description) the seal on this print is for 1870.9.

Back to your print:

Flipping around kabuki21 a little, I think the actor must be Onoe Baikō V, aka Onoe Kikugorō V.

I haven't found much information on Shirataki Sashichi, but there's a design from a Yoshitoshi series about him:
