It seems that uBLAS is not fitted for this purpose as is.
You would have to write your own wrapper.
Sparse matrix of Deal.II lib does such thing:
but it's use isn't as simple (for the first time).

1) You didn't provided the types of variables
that participate in your code.
2) You still can assemble fem matrices in very effective way,with uBLAS
(with very low memory allocation penalty). Please see :

I personally like to assemble into coordinate_matrix, then copy
the values into compressed_matrix.
