MATE 1.8 is currently packaged for wheezy (backports), testing (jessie) and unstable. In the case of wheezy the backports repository has to be enabled as described in the official (http://backports.debian.org/Instructions/) backport documentation. To make sure you update the repository after enabling backports.

# Make sure package list is up-to-date.
sudo apt-get update
# To install MATE choose *one* of the three apt-get lines below.
# This will install the base packages required for a minimal MATE desktop
sudo apt-get install mate-desktop-environment-core
# This will install the complete MATE desktop
sudo apt-get install mate-desktop-environment
# This will install the complete MATE desktop including a few extras
sudo apt-get install mate-desktop-environment-extras
