Thank you for the email.
What is the default "n"?

 Increasing the value of 'n' given to density will give an estimate at more points so it will look smoother.  Try n=2^18.

 I have a dataset with 6187 elements, ranged from 3 to 104028. When I tried to examine only small range of data, I found that the plot was not smooth (as shown below):
plot(density(test$V2), xlim=c(0,1000))

 Is there away to make it smoother?
Thanks a lot!!
